Helping needy local communities has become a cornerstone of the Kit Kat Group’s annual outreach. This year, for the tenth consecutive year, the group has donated blankets which its staff members have handed out to local community members, hospitals and schools. Over 700 blankets are donated annually each winter, providing much-needed warmth to recipients.
Kit Kat Group CEO, Riaz Gani: “While we work with a number of communities, we also make sure that our stores’ team members work with their local communities to identify ways in which we can participate and contribute towards initiatives like the blanket drive. This way, our people play a significant role in helping us to make a difference in our country and give hope to the local communities in which we operate.”
“Further to this, we’ve identified a need to support the Kliptown community through a feeding programme. So many people, including children, suffer because of poverty, and as a company, we strongly believe that every person has the right to good nutrition. On a monthly basis, our Kliptown store feeds almost 800 people with a warm, nutritious meal. In the words of Nelson Mandela, freedom is meaningless if people cannot put food in their stomachs and we will continue to make a difference and help communities around us,” concludes Gani.
