The Community Basket started with the collecting of clothes and shoes left behind by guests at Coffee Shack Backpackers. We now encourage guests to donate anything they do not want or that cannot fit into their backpacks to the Community Basket and we will distribute these to the communities around the Coffee Bay area.
Every year we distribute the donations from the Community Basket, usually between 70 – 100 boxes. These boxes have clothes and shoes for men, women and children and we distribute to different villages each time.
Thanks to Coffee Shack’s generous guests we are able to assist poverty-stricken families with some simple necessities.
Herzlia Highlands Primary School has become a regular annual donor to the Community Basket and we thank them for their continued support. Also BIG thanks to the Baz Bus who generously transport these items to us for free! Milnerton Montessori has also made exceptionally generous donations to this basket – thank you!
