Giving hope & warmth this winter

Hi PEN family,

We are proud to announce that the 2021 Winterhoop was a huge success. With temperatures dropping to unbelievably cold temperatures this winter, support for the vulnerable is most essential, which is why we want to thank everyone who has opened their hearts and donated in these desperate times.

Winterhoop has been running for 20 years with the support of multiple organisations, including His Hands, Towers of Hope & MES along with PEN to create an opportunity to give and distribute clothes, blankets, non-perishables, PPE’s to vulnerable communities across South Africa.

This year we received 1472 blankets , 1286 clothing items, 1364 food parcels and 1305 beds for shelters.

PEN has collaborated with Winterhoop to partner with and serve those in need, providing donations of jerseys to young children and food to vulnerable adults.  PEN is grateful for the support we have received and would like to thank everyone who helped make this initiative a huge success.
