Pam Golding Properties - ‘Home from Home’ bring winter warmth

This winter, Pam Golding Properties offices around the country collected blankets, clothing, food and other items as part of the company’s national ‘Winter Warmer’ campaign to help those in need within the various disadvantaged communities stay warm during the cold winter months.

At the Pam Golding Property (PGP) group’s head office in Cape Town a wide variety of items, including canned foods, beanies, scarves, jerseys and other clothing were collected and handed over to Home from Home, a non-profit organisation which provides support and community based foster care for children in need.

Orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children are taken into Home from Home’s network of small family homes where they can grow up in their home communities and culture, with a foster family to support and care for them. Each home houses no more than six children and has a trained foster mother who takes care of the children on a full-time basis. Based in Wynberg, Cape Town, Home from Home also runs a Day Care Centre in Khayelitsha for 55 children, who also benefited from the PGP donations.

Says Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group: “Being involved in the real estate industry we identified Home from Home - which provides orphaned and abandoned children with a place they can call home - as an organisation we really relate to. We felt this winter was the ideal opportunity to assist them in their highly worthwhile initiatives and contribute towards helping those in need in the communities in which we operate.”
