Winter Blanket Drive 2021
Help us keep those most vulnerable warm this winter!
Winter is well on it's way, and if these past few weeks are anything to go by... It promises to be a cold one!
We will be running a blanket drive for the next 2 months. We are looking for blankets (old or new), or a tax deductible donation towards our waterproof blankets, thanks to our partnership with Go Sublimation.
We can collect from you, or you can drop off at one of our 3 designated collection points in Claremont, Century City and Bellville.
Every little bit helps!!

Lives of Cape Town's most vulnerable changed
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
CASH DONATIONS TOWARDS WATERPROOF BLANKETS
Call 2 Care have partnered with Go Sublimation, based in Somerset West, to produce waterproof blankets. As per the image above, the red side is waterproof and can be laid down on wet surfaces or can be wrapped around your body with the waterproof side out so that you are protected from the rain. They are so nice and warm and this is going to be so appreciated by those vulnerable to the upcoming cold and rain, this winter. The production process also includes employing women from underserved communities for the cutting, stitching and sewing of the blankets - a major win to further sustainability of this initiative.
DROP OFF BLANKETS AND CLOTHES AT OUR COLLECTION SITES
We have 3 collection points based around Cape Town, in Claremont, Century City and Bellville. If you'd like to become a collection point for your area, let us know!
DONATE FABRIC TOWARDS OUR WATERPROOF BLANKETS
If you work in a clothing or textiles company, and have left over material or off-cuts to spare, or the skills and machinery to make blankets from the office or at home.

Our partners, LADLES OF LOVE
We have partnered with the incredible Ladles of Love, who will help us deliver the blankets to those who are most vulnerable in Cape Town.
"One small gesture can change someone’s world. Let’s make it happen."
Their founder, Danny, started Ladles of Love with one small soup kitchen serving soup to the homeless once a week on St. Georges Mall. Today, we serve hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children and families from our depots throughout the Cape region.
To reach further, be more sustainable, and help communities support themselves, we now work to assist a number of non-profit organisations, community projects, and schools across the peninsula, and establish community kitchens where they are needed most.
Their foundation is about more than providing meals. It’s about dignity, respect, and creating the kind of world we all want to live in.
