Bidvest subsidiary, Ocean Liner Service collected about 4000 cans of food in a charity drive amongst its staff and suppliers, to help old people in need.

Other businesses eagerly took on the Ocean Liner challenge to collect food in their Winter Can Charity drive. “We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful response our Winter Food Can Charity Project created especially among office staff of various businesses. We were able to collect about 4,000 food cans! The aim of the project was to collect as many food cans as we could, which in turn would be donated to various charities and communities in need. The Ocean Liners Service’ staff felt that we had to try and alleviate some of the hardships many people in our communities endure especially during the winter months. We also realised that these people may even be your employees who won’t let on that they need help,” said Jacqueline Hebbard-Ferreira, General Manager of Ocean Liner.
“Although the public support at the supermarkets were somewhat disappointing, we received large quantities of cans from local fishing companies and office staff. We even received donations of noodles and soup packets, all of which really goes a long way in giving someone a warm meal this winter. We greatly appreciate the support and are delighted that so many companies joined us in making a difference this winter,” she noted. The cans were donated to His House, Jonah Home, Huis Palms, House of Hope, Kuisebmond Old Age Home, The Royal Family and to senior citizens in need in Narraville.
