Community Chest to build Mandela Day book mountain

Community Chest is championing Madiba’s call for education and are inviting all corporates, staff and public to donate 67 or more books to the building of the Bree Street Mandela Day book mountain, which will be built at 82 Bree Street on Tuesday July 18, which marks Mandela Day, from 11am to noon.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring books and help build the book mountain. All the books will be donated to schools, child and youth care centres in Cape Town. At noon, there will be a moment of silence in the form of a human chain in honour of Madiba. For more information, call Thando Makili at 021 487 1500.
