Launch of Mandela Day Pick n Pay book drive
Helping South Africa’s children learn to love books
28 June 2012
Giving students at disadvantaged schools access to books is the focus of the Pick n Pay Mandela Day book drive, which was launched on Thursday 28 June at the Pick n Pay head office in Kensington, Johannesburg.
The “Donate a book and build a future that’s full of goodness” campaign will see the creation of book drop-off points at certain Pick n Pay stores across the country. People can contribute to the cause by donating books and educational reading material.
South Africans are encouraged to champion the collection of books among their communities and donate to the cause by dropping off books (old and new) at their closest participating Pick n Pay in honour of Mandela Day.
