The Hollywood Foundation is proud to announce the return of the “Back to School” campaign, through a R4 million pledge that seeks to assist parents and learners from various communities across South Africa. The aim of the campaign is to empower many learners at the start of the new schooling year with key school supplies.
As part of the pledge, selected schools will each receive stationery, school shoes and uniforms to the value of between R15 000 and R30 000. The campaign has been launched at a significant time this year and aims to take the pressure off parents during a tough economic climate.
To assist with the selection of schools, the Hollywood Foundation has partnered with Brand Ambassadors, such as Keshav Maharaj, Robert Marawa and Carol Tshabalala, and other non-profit organisations, including starlet Nomzamo Mbatha’s Lighthouse Foundation. Hollywoodbets’ 96 retail branches nationwide will also be part of efforts to make a difference in the lives of many learners this year. To launch the campaign, the Hollywood Foundation has partnered with Black Coffee Foundation for handovers in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape.
