The Blanket Project

The Blanket Project — Daniel Bloch (Cape SAJBD) with Lauren Cohn (JCS) and staff of Pick n Pay Ottery and Feed the Nation Foundation

During September and October, we partnered with Jewish Community Services, on The Blanket Project campaign.

The objective of this campaign was to encourage our community to donate blankets to those in need, both within and outside of our community. This project was in honour and memory of the late Eric Samson.

We would like to thank all those who generously donated. A special thank you to Pick n Pay and Feed the Nation Foundation who donated 100 blankets, and the Pick n Pay School Club who donated more than 100 bottles of sanitiser. The beneficiaries of this campaign are the Congolese Civil Society, Umubano Foundation Rwanda, Western Cape Burundi Community, RAM — Rescue Among Others and Jewish Community Services.

If you would like to know more about these organisations and how you can donate, please email us at
