AS the festive season approaches, Isuzu Motors South Africa has partnered with Love Story and Imvelo Yethu (Non-Profit Organisations), to fill up and handover 400 Buckets of Blessings to disadvantaged communities in Gqeberha and Johannesburg.

The Buckets of Blessings initiative began in 2016 and is aimed at ensuring those who are in desperate need are at least able to enjoy their festive season.

“Living up to our ethos of caring and giving back to communities, we have rolled up our sleeves to pack and deliver 400 Buckets of Blessings to communities in kwaDwesi and Joe Slovo in Gqeberha as well as in Tembisa, Johannesburg. As a responsible corporate citizen and key contributor to communities within which we operate, Isuzu Motors South Africa is extremely honoured to be able to bring a smile to those in need. Hunger is one of the biggest societal challenges faced by our disadvantaged communities. These Buckets of Blessings bring hope and some relief to the destitute in these communities during the festive season”, says Isuzu corporate and public affairs department executive, Lebogang Makoloi.

In line with the theme ‘Isuzu Cares, I care Too’, the 400 Buckets of Blessings filled with grocery essentials were packed and delivered by Isuzu employees to communities in kwaDwesi and Joe Slovo (Gqeberha) and in Tembisa (Johannesburg).

The grocery items were carefully chosen to provide nutritional value and to last a family of four, for approximately a month. The bulk groceries were procured by Isuzu from Feed the Nation, who also came on board by donating two additional vegetable items into each bucket. The Isuzu team packed and delivered the Buckets of Blessings as part of the employee volunteerism programme and gave their time to those in need.

Isuzu has been a long-term corporate partner to the Buckets of Blessings initiative and prides itself in playing a key role in initiatives that seek to benefit local communities.
