Dis-Chem Foundation gives support to Souper Troopers #RandomActofKindness

Souper Troopers are a group of like-minded individuals who meet once a month to socialise and give out soup to the homeless, sandwiches, clothes and toiletries.

They give love and attention to people needing it be it an old age home or just in the streets of Cape Town.

Manager Kerry Hoffman says their monthly events are an opportunity for people to connect and brake down social divides and perspectives of each other.

She says they are grateful of the support they've been getting from companies who have been donating and helping them feed the homeless.

They are currently looking for a place where they can be able to help those who are in need and be the first port of call.

Project manager at Dis-Chem Foundation, Penny Stein presented the Souper Troopers with R5 000 every month for a year to buy toiletries and other essentials for the homeless.
