As the year draws to an end, we look back on 2021 with gratitude and pride. While we were faced with another year full of challenges, we cannot help but reflect on what we have overcome, and appreciate the courage and tenacity of our staff at SMG and the communities that surround us.
If there is one thing this year has taught us, it is that there is power in unity. Together we have fought, and continue to fight, against the spread and devastation of COVID-19, we rallied together as strangers in true South African Spirit and together we can make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. This was the inspiration behind our “Season of Hope” Christmas campaign, driven by SMG Cares.
This year, we were on a mission to reach further. Our KwaZulu-Natal dealerships partnered with The Robin Hood Foundation and donated an incredible 5 vehicle loads of essential items that will be distributed amongst the very deserving communities and organizations across various areas that they assist.
“Passionate about bettering the lives and futures of those in need, the Robin Hood Foundation is committed to mobilising resources from businesses and individuals and putting them directly into the hands of the poor grannies, needy mums and children in our surrounding impoverished and AIDS-affected communities.”
Our amazing dealers in the Western Cape donated toiletries and care packages to NOAH (Neighbourhood Old Age Homes), which gives comfort, safety and dignity to social pensioners in the Woodstock area.
“After a lifetime of working, many of these old people are stripped of their dignity and become victims of loneliness, destitution, abuse, illness and depression. Our vision at the Neighbourhood Old Age Homes (NOAH) is healthy & thriving communities led by our elders.”
SMG Cares would like to thank all our staff and corporate partners for their tremendous efforts to make the Season of Hope Campaign successful. And most importantly, to you, our loyal customers – without your support we would not be fortunate enough to be able to give back and bring change to all the lives that these organisations touch. We rise, by lifting others.
