Food Hampers handed over to Classic Youth Club Courtesy of Hollywoodbets and Lighthouse Foundation’s Brighter Future Project
Food hampers to the value of R12 500 were handed over to the talented beneficiaries of the Classic Youth Club and their families. Since its establishment in 1986, the non-profit has been committed to its mission of providing and promoting arts and cultural programmes within the Sebokeng community in Gauteng. The club has been successful in educating its learners about arts, music and dance, creating jobs for artists, and participating in local and international theatre and film festivals. Many of the members of the Classic Youth Club are the breadwinners in their families. Due to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the South African economy, they are now facing unemployment and are unable to provide for their households.
Hollywoodbets reached out in response to their call for aid by donating 25 food parcels filled with non-perishable goods to help sustain those in need during this time. The donation was made possible after the company’s recent announcement that the Hollywoodbets My Community Programme, in collaboration with Nomzamo Mbatha’s Lighthouse Foundation would be donating R1 million to go to 60 NPOs and NGOs across all nine of South Africa’s provinces as part of their COVID-19 relief strategy.
Hollywoodbets Representative, Lorraine Tshabalala, was thrilled to be assisting the club during this pandemic. “It is a privilege to be a part of this incredible initiative to assist the Classic Youth Club and its talented individuals. We hope that our small contribution will go a long way in easing the suffering of the club members and their families during these uncertain times.”
Director of Classic Youth Club, Monamodi Motse, expressed his appreciation and thanked Hollywoodbets for their efforts. “We, the Classic Youth Club and the families of the beneficiaries, are so grateful for all that Hollywoodbets has done for our community. With their help, we will be able to continue working towards achieving our goal of improving the lives of our people through arts and culture. Thank you, Hollywoodbets, for choosing to support our family!”
