To further bolster these efforts Primedia Cares, the Corporate Social Investment (CSI) arm of the Primedia Group, also took action through Kfm
and Cape Talk —
two leading Primedia Broadcasting radio stations in the region. Cape Talk
launched on-air campaigns, urging their audiences to contribute necessary items by donating them at their nearest Pick n Pay store.
This collaborative initiative included an activation at NI City, where individuals were encouraged to make a difference by contributing to the relief efforts. In a display of solidarity, Kfm
and Cape Talk
dedicated over R600 000 in airtime to support this initiative, according to Primedia.
"We are deeply committed to supporting the Western Cape communities affected by the devastating floods. Feed the Nation Foundation and Pick n Pay are able to provide essential supplies and bring hope to those in need. Partnering with Kfm
and Cape Talk
helped extend our collection efforts in involving the generous public of the Western Cape. Together, we can make a difference and show the power of collective action in times of crisis," says Feed the Nation Foundation trustee Vaughn Piece.
