Stormers in a collection box

26 March 2012

You can't accuse the Students' Health & Welfare Centres Organisation (SHAWCO) of thinking small.

Always on the lookout for garments and footwear for its Rags 2 Riches venture, the organisation has now struck a deal with no less a partner than the DHL Stormers.

Per this agreement SHAWCO will set up a number of its collecting bins at the Stormers' home Super 15 matches, into which fans can drop donated clothing.

These items are then sold at SHAWCO's growing number of Rags 2 Riches stores or to township entrepreneurs, the income used to fund the organisation's educational outreach projects.

SHAWCO expects to have 30 Rags 2 Riches stores up and running in 2012, reports director Varkey George.
