Coca-Cola South Africa associates visited Boys and Girls Club in Pimville, Soweto, to make a substantial donation of Coca-Cola products, fresh groceries, canned goods, sports equipment, toiletries and cleaning materials. Globally, The Coca-Cola Company has had a long-standing relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs, which facilitate after-school programmes for young people between the ages of 6-19. The clubs are supervised by trained professionals and are a positive space for children where they can receive homework support and explore their talents and abilities in a reassuring environment. CCSA’s donation, which totals over R30 000 in value, will be split between the clubs in Pimville, which cater to nearly 1,000 children, and Protea Glen, which cater to 280 children.
