The team from Engel & Völkers Durbanville proved that teamwork and community support in a time of crisis truly does pay off. E&V Durbanville collected items for the victims of the Knysna fires this past week, and opened their shop as a drop-off point.
“We focused on making this a success, with emails being sent to each and every person on our database, spreading the word do our social media platforms, aswell as phone calls and SMS’s to make our community aware of our drive” says Antoinette Swanepoel, Licence Partner of Engel & Völkers Durbanville.
They collected much needed items such as non-perishable foods, clothing, blankets aswell as pet food. They furthermore also received plenty of cash donations and wish to thank the Durbanville community for their participation and involvement. “We are truly humbled by the amount of support we received to assist us in helping those in need.,” Antoinette added.
DHL will be taking all the items to Knysna, with the first batch already on its way to those who are in dire need.
