Chippa Give Back To Community With Poverty Alleviation Initiative
Chippa United Give Back To The Community
Chippa United are giving back to the community with a poverty alleviation initiative.
The Chilli Boys, who are preparing to host Orlando Pirates this weekend, are in partnership with non-profit organization, Meals on Wheels.
The Eastern Cape club are calling on fans from both Chippa and Pirates to bring along non-perishable items to the stadium to donate to the cause on matchday.
Chippa will host Bucs at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.
Contacted for comment, Luthando ‘Trompies’ Zibeko, who is the Marketing and Communications manager at Chippa, explained to the Siya crew how the initiative has come about.
“Also, we are hoping that through this initiative we will inspire other organisations and football clubs to do the same. We call upon our supporters to support the initiative,” he added.
“We have extended a courtesy call to Orlando Pirates to say we have this initiative. I am sure that Pirates supporters will heed the call and bring tinned food on Sunday. We know that our people – through the spirit of Ubuntu – want to make a contribution. Tomorrow (Friday) we will be at Greenacres mall where people can drop the stuff. The team will be there from 11h30 to 14h00. The stuff will also be collected from all the major entrance points to the stadium on Sunday. Food will not be allowed inside the stadium. The handover of the tins of food collected will be done in KwaZakhele (Port Elizabeth),” concluded the club official.
