One of B-Sure’s greatest values is that of unity. This not only extends to our community within B-Sure, but to the greater community as a whole.
July was the first month most B-Surians made their way back to the office. Having been extremely grateful to be in the position we were in, we thought that it would be vitally important to give back to those who were in less fortunate positions. We reached out to our B-Surians and in a time where it was needed most, they stepped up to the plate!
Although winter was coming to a close, we thought we’d still try to help in any way we could by holding a blanket drive. A special mention goes out to our own Stephen Williams and Jonty Payne who hit double digits with their donations of 10 and 11 blankets respectively. We managed to donate a total of 111 blankets to Mould Empower Serve (MES) Kempton Park. MES works with the homeless in Johannesburg by providing them with food parcels, accommodation, and social support services.
Each year, our B-Surians run an annual winter clothing drive – despite it having been slightly delayed due to lockdown, we still managed to receive an overwhelming amount of donations! So much so that we needed two cars to get all donations delivered! These were all donated to the Vita Nova Centre, a residential facility who house and care for those with Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, Autism, and the Physically and Mentally challenged.
Finally, to celebrate Nelson Mandela Day, we challenged our B-Surians to take time out of their day to perform a random act of kindness, no matter how big or small. Unsurprisingly, we discovered that some of our staff had been working throughout the lockdown period to assist those in need by donating appliances, as well as providing food and clothing parcels to those in need! Other B-Surian acts ranged from painting the rooms of those who could not afford it, donating food and other supplies to their local SPCA, and distributing food around their communities.
We are so proud to be known as B-Surians who not only care for our little family, but the greater community too!
