This Festive Season our team at Juice Film, together with our friends, colleagues, crew, and suppliers, aimed to collect as many food items as possible to donate to an organisation in need of support.
After a few phone calls we happened upon the St Monica’s Home for the elderly situated in the recently re-named Bo-kaap at the foot of Signal Hill in Cape Town.
On delivery of our donation, we were met by many smiling and happy faces filled with wrinkles, stories, and a deep appreciation for the boxes of food and treats stacked to the ceiling of our car. A very sweet woman who helped us to offload lit up with child-like enthusiasm at the sight of an enormous tin of coffee, making a bee-line to help deliver the tin to the kitchen.
We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everybody who made a donation that will make a huge difference in the lives of the men and women at St Monica’s. We extend our heartfelt wishes to you for a happy and healthy holiday season.
