Now in its forth year, the Dress Jozi Walk is an annual one day initiative started in 2012 with the objective of identifying homeless and destitute persons living in the Johannesburg CBD with the purpose of donating warm clothes to wear throughout the cold winter days.
This year’s event takes place in
Newtown - JHB (Next to Maryfitzgerald Square) on
Saturday morning of 06 June 2015 from 7am till 5pm and attracts persons, businesses, government agencies and other social development organizations.
As the cold blistering winter days usher in, some of us who are fortunate enough have already purchased extra blankets, heaters, hot-water bottles, warm winter clothing and footwear. Our roofs and walls will be keeping the relentless winter chills and winds away while we enjoy warm beverages, soup, and foods prepared with our electrical appliances to get and keep warm.
Through this initiative we encourage you to jump with us into action for the street dwellers, young and old. We dedicate a day to bring some warmth in the form of warm clothing, footwear, and blankets to the street dwellers of Johannesburg CDB. It may not be a lot but it will certainly make that difference.
While we are at it, we also decided to think about and assist those youths without appropriate corporate interview clothing who have just completed matric or graduated from tertiary institutions going for their first ever interviews at various companies. We are also in the process of collecting corporate clothing for these financially constrained high potential would be young professionals.
How you can get involved:
• Become a drop-off point for donations of clothes.
• Collect decent and good clothing to donate on the day of the event.
• Donate warm clothing.
• Contribute refreshment for the participants.
• Contribute marquee tents, stage, &PA/Sound system.
• Food items to hand out to the homeless/destitute
We don’t give because we have more, but we give because we know how it feels not to have.
