CBA making a difference with Sleeping Bag ProjectIn July, 2014, Konica Minolta South Africa partner, CBA Group, teamed up with HGG’s NPO Sustainability Solutions division and Media24 for a sleeping bag drive, where participants were taught how to make sleeping bags from old newspapers, plastic sheets and tape. The completed sleeping bags were then distributed to the needy on Cape Town’s streets by HGG.
“What an incredible experience for all at CBA. This initiative opened up the CBA staff’s hearts and eyes to the reality for those that live on the streets of Cape Town. We hope that with the foundations laid that our staff will take these skills learnt and upskill their individual communities in making a difference,” said Reneé Cole financial manager at CBA Group.
