Linen supplier Sheet Street showed its desire to help the community when last week Tuesday it donated a set of household items to Rob Youth Foundation, meant to assist members of the community in need.
Through its Ondangwa Gwashamba Mall branch, Sheet Street handed over a donation comprised of items such as two comforter sets, a vase, tables, photo frames and mirrors.
Speaking during the handover, Sheet Street Ondangwa Gwashamba Mall store manager Ms Thresia Hangomo said: “We Sheet Street under the Mr Price group believe in giving back to the community, especially to the less fortunate. We are glad to be in partnership with the Rob Youth Foundation.”
The Foundation’s Oshana Regional Manager Ms Anna Shikulo expressed gratitude toward Sheet Street and said it was a welcome gesture that would set an example for other corporates to hold hands with the Foundation and try to assist those in need.
“Thank you for making our corporate operation so effortless, for the donations, and, for setting a positive example to other companies. This not only sets an example within the region, but the entire country, that giving to others who are not fortunate enough to have something is a good gesture.”
She added: “This is the beginning of a journey to jointly empower and assist those who are in need, and we hope to nurture this partnership to identify and assist more people that are in need.”
The donation also included a large vase, two side tables, two family tree photo frames, three round mirrors, a bath basket, a potted igloo, candles, diffusers and, a placement mat.
