NPO Festive Fundraising with Shoprite & Checkers

NPO’s, with Christmas around the corner, it’s time to get festive with your fundraising! Don’t miss this once-a-year offer from Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper to jump on the sleigh and up your donation count! Here’s how to connect your cause this Christmas. 

The tradition of charities wrapping gifts in exchange for customer donations has become synonymous with Christmas at Shoprite and Checkers stores, and that time of year has rolled around again! The retailer is sounding the trumpet, welcoming registered charities to apply for this annual festive season fundraiser.

Each year, hundreds of qualifying charities have the opportunity to man in-store gift wrapping stations at 577 Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper stores across South Africa. Here twinkle eyed customers can have their gifts wrapped in exchange for a small donation.

 

 

“We encourage all customers to take advantage of this in-store service. All proceeds are donated to the local charity manning the station.” – Lunga Schoeman, CSI spokesperson for Shoprite and Checkers

 

This truly is an incredible opportunity for all NPOs! New Beginnings, a non-profit organisation that feeds 25000 people per week, has been a beneficiary for more than five years. This is what they had to say about their experience:

 

“This is a great fundraising initiative! People in our business know that December is the most difficult time of the year but the funds we raise carry us through this rough time. We are always grateful.” – Bernice Myers, marketing manager at New Beginnings

 

For many NPOs, this initiative is the gift that keeps on giving:
“To other charities I’d say grab this opportunity with both hands. It’s a huge help! Last year we were able to buy a new fridge and special treats for the children living in our CHOC Homes. It goes a long way in easing financial burdens.” – Gadija Israel, regional fundraiser at CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation

 

Applying to become a beneficiary organisation is easy:

  1. Complete the online application form before Friday, 2 November 2018.
  2. Attach a copy of the NPO representative’s South African ID or passport and the NPO’s certificate.
  3. Read the terms and conditions.
  4. Wait for e-mail confirmation regarding the status of your application.

 

It’s just that simple! Sign up your NPO today to get involved in this gold dusted opportunity.
