NO END IN SIGHT TO DEBONAIRS PIZZA VALLEY HYPER’S GOODWILL

The past two years have been anything but predictable.Despite the constant unpredictability caused by the pandemic, two things arecertain: Each COVID-19 wave will affect livelihoods, but there will always beestablishments such as Debonairs Pizza Valley Hyper to offer a helping hand.

Like many communities across the country, the city ofNelspruit has been negatively affected by COVID-19. The third wave led to anumber of job losses in the form of retrenchment; leaving people who wereemployed with no means to put food on the table. This is one of the manyreasons Debonairs Pizza Valley Hyper continues to support the NelspruitCommunity Forum by Doughnating 60 pizza flatbreads every second week. The teamhas promised to continue working with local NGOs for the benefit of thecommunity.

Here’s hoping this partnership continues to offer hopeto the community of Nelspruit.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA NELSPRUIT GIVING BACK TO THE CHILDREN

The team at Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing loves giving back to the community of Mataffin. They regularly visit the Woodhouse Community Centre to make a Doughnation. The centre houses and cares for vulnerable children. Whenever the children see the Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing team arrive with the Doughnation bags, they excitedly chant in unison: ‘Pizza! Pizza! Pizza!’ During their last visit, the team treated the children to Snackster pizzas. They were so excited and happy to receive the Doughnation. The team were glad to be given a chance to make the children smile.

And you should also be glad, Debonairs Pizza fam. Thanks to your support, this Doughnation, as well as countless others are made possible.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA KANYAMAZANE DOUGHNATES A SPECIAL TREAT TO COMMUNITY PATROLLERS

The unrest of July 2021 is something many of us would rather forget. Newspapers, social media, and televisions were filled with images of stores and malls gutted to the ground by looting.

But amidst the chaos that characterised those dark days, a glimmer of hope appeared in some parts of the country. When businesses across the country were looted, residents of Kanyamazane, Mpumalanga came together to protect the shopping centre in their neighbourhood. When the shopping centre closed for three days, the residents partnered with security guards to protect the businesses it housed.

Once the shopping centre reopened its doors, Debonairs Pizza Kanyamazane felt compelled to offer a gesture of thanks. The team Doughnated 20 large pizzas to the community patrollers and security guards to thank them for a job well done.

A big thank you to the team for showing its gratitude to the men and women who went out of their way to protect the businesses in their community.

LOYAL CUSTOMERS GET A FREE LUNCH COURTESY OF DEBONAIRS PIZZA KABOKWENI

Most businesses have satisfied customers, very few have loyal ones. It’s one thing to have a customer come for a pizza; it’s another to have them come back for more.

When a group of police officers came to order their lunch, the team at Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni knew what to expect. It was not the first time the officers came to the restaurant, and after the team’s Doughnation, it certainly won’t be the last. In addition to the lunch they ordered, the team gave the officers 12 small Real Deal pizzas on the house.

A big thank you to the team for spoiling the men and women who keep their community safe. Most businesses have satisfied customers, very few have loyal ones. It’s one thing to have a customer come for a pizza; it’s another to have them come back for more.

CELEBRATING MANDELA DAY IN A BIG WAY

Nelson Mandela once said, “Our children are our future and one of the basic responsibilities is to care for them in the best and most compassionate manner possible.” So, in honour of his legacy, Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini spent Mandela Day at the Siyabonga Drop-In Centre, which takes care of orphans and vulnerable children in the community.

The team regularly donates pizza flatbread to the centre, but this time around they decided to give them a special surprise. They hosted a birthday celebration for all the children born between January and July. The children were very excited and happy to see the team, especially when they saw the tasty treats that they had brought with them – 50 small pizzas and an amazing birthday cake!

The birthday celebration was a huge success and a great time was had by all. Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini enjoys spending time with the children and creating special moments for them to enjoy. That’s why, they will continue to support the Siyabonga Drop-In Centre in any way they can through Doughnation.

HELPING TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY SAFE

A home means different things to different people. A sense of belonging, the love of your family, or a feeling of familiarity are just a few of the things we associate with the word ‘home’. But above all, home is a place of safety.

For most people, public safety is the responsibility of the police. But active citizens understand that true public safety is a collaboration between law enforcement as well as the community. Debonairs Pizza Namakgale recently made a Doughnation to a group of residents who took it upon themselves to lend a helping hand to local law enforcement agencies. The team Doughnated 47 Real Deal pizzas and cold drinks to a group of community patrollers who partnered with the police to keep a watchful eye on their community.

A big thank you to the team for boosting the morale of active citizens.

DEBONAIRS WITBANK CBD SALUTES TAXI OPERATORS BEHIND LOCAL SAFETY DRIVE

Taxi drivers often get a bad rap, but the operators of Emalahleni Taxi Association went above and beyond to safeguard the businesses in their community. After a week of looting in parts of the country, the drivers took it upon themselves to keep a watchful eye on the businesses in the area. The drivers split themselves into groups, with some patrolling during the day while others clocked in at night.

When Debonairs Pizza Witbank CBD heard of the good work done by their local taximen, they decided to extend a gesture of goodwill. The team has been Doughnating pizza to the taxi operators every three days and will continue to do so until they stop patrolling.

Thank you to the team for making sure those who keep their community safe have something amazing to curb their hunger.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA KANYAMAZANE TAKES THE FIRST STEP

Asking for help is no easy task. The desire to do things on our own seems to be hardwired into us, even when a little bit of help would be appreciated. That’s why Debonairs Pizza Kanyamazane always seeks to identify vulnerable people who need help, but are reluctant to ask for it.

One such family is the Ngemas, a family of 37, living in a hostel in Mbombela, Mpumalanga. When Debonairs Pizza Kanyamazane was looking for Doughnation recipients, they came across the family of 20 adults and 17 kids. The team donated 16 blankets, 70 pizza flat breads, and 20 bottles of 2L soft drinks. This is just one of many Doughnations the team is committed to making in an effort to help the community.

Thank you to the team for taking the first steps towards a fruitful relationship with the most vulnerable members of its society.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA VALLEY HYPER RISES TO THE CHALLENGE

COVID-19 has created two problems for charities: An increase in demand for their services and a significant decrease in income. The Debonairs Pizza Valley Hyper team has had to adapt and innovate to continue offering a helping hand to its community. Thankfully, they have managed to overcome the challenges created by the pandemic and continue to give assistance where it’s needed most.

The team Doughnated 60 pizza flat breads to the Damascus Farm Feeding Scheme, an initiative run by the Nelspruit Community Forum. The team has previously worked with the forum, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Good job to the team for rising above the challenges of the new normal to keep making a difference.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA RIVERSIDE MALL GOES BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY

Communities are bound by more than geographic location. True communities are connected by a sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare. Simply put, neighbourhoods are made of houses; but communities are founded on humanity.

Debonairs Pizza Riverside Mall believes it has more to offer its community than amazing pizza. As part of its ongoing relationship with Nelspruit Community Forum, the team Doughnated pizza flatbreads to the NPO. The team looks forward to lending a helping hand to the forum, which shares their goal to work towards the common good.

Well done to the Debonairs Pizza Riverside Mall team for its persistent commitment to community service.

DEBONAIRS SHELL LADYSMITH ADDRESSES CHILD HUNGER

Schoolwork is serious business. Think back to the days when you creased your brow in confusion as you tried to solve a puzzling math equation. Or when you funnelled all your brainpower towards making sense of a language assignment. Learning is hard enough without having to contend with hunger.

Debonairs Shell Ladysmith is passionate about youth empowerment, and believes education unlocks the vast potential that resides in all young people. That’s why they Doughnated pizza flat breads to Joseph Shabalala Secondary School on Youth Day. The Doughnation was aimed at boosting the school’s feeding scheme, which offers nutritious meals to students in need.

A big thank you to the team for removing a major obstacle to effective learning.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA NELSPRUIT CROSSING QUENCHES THE THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE

True education is not about filling a mind with facts, but rather the kindling of lifelong curiosity. Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing believes that the power to question sets the foundation for future achievement. So, how would one fan the tiny, inner sparks of inquisitiveness? By giving children the tools they need to light the candle of learning.

The team recently fed the hungry minds and tummies at Woodhouse Community Centre by Doughnating 60 pizza flatbreads and exercise books. This is one of several Doughnations that Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing has made to the community centre.

Well done to the team for igniting the future generation’s desire to learn.

DOUGHNATION PUTS A PEP IN SENIOR CITIZENS’ STEP

Offering a helping hand to the elderly is one of the highest honours in life. Caring for those who once cared for us is one of the many ways that Debonairs Pizza staff could add a bit of hope to their community.

When it was time for the elderly to receive their Pensioner’s Grant, Debonairs Pizza Tonga decided to be of service to the senior citizens. A large number of the elderly folk in their community walk long distances and queue for hours to receive their grant, so the team decided to make a Doughnation that made the wait a bit more pleasant.

The team Doughnated freshly baked pizza flat breads and juice to give the golden oldies a bit of an energy boost. The recipients were more than happy to have something to snack on while they waited for their grant.

Thank you to the team for seeing value in caring for those who walked before us.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA NELSPRUIT PLAZA GOES GREEN FOR THE YOUTH

There are two noble causes that are close to Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Plaza: Taking care of the planet and supporting the generation that will inherit it.

The team recently paid a visit to SOS Children’s Village Nelspruit, where they Doughnated pizza flat breads and jam. The centre is one of eight children’s villages across the country that take care of 5 000 children.

Pencil bags were also Doughnated to the centre. But these were no ordinary bags. The bags were made from old fabric taken from discarded Debonairs banners. It’s just one of the many ways the store hopes to reduce its environmental footprint while helping NPOs in its community.

Well done to the team for not only doing their bit to help the youth, but also protecting the planet that will be left in their care.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA NKOMAZI PLAZA PUTS A SMILE ON FOUR SIBLINGS’ FACES

For most people, childhood is synonymous with carefree innocence. Responsibilities such as working a job, keeping the lights on,and spending wisely are distant realities that barely came to mindwhen we’re young. But for those who live inchild-headed households, such serenity is as elusive as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Far too many children in South Africa are forced to place potential goals aside to focus solely on getting by. The Tibane siblings are one such family. The four siblings have had a hard time making ends meet since their parents passed away;and the 17-year-old brother’s admirable efforts to put food on the table are simply not enough to keep the ship afloat.

When Debonairs Pizza Nkomazi Plaza became aware of the Tibane siblings’ plight, the way forward was obvious: They had to offer whatever help they could. The team has endeavoured to buy food parcelsfor the family, and is hoping to ramp up their Doughnations to meet the siblings’ ever-increasing needs.

Well done to the team for bringing a bit of light to a bleak situation. We have no doubt these young siblings can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they don’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from.

ELUKWATINI BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF ONGOING RELATIONSHIPS

Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini believes in the power of ongoing relationships. That’s why the team views Siyabonga Drop-in Centre as more than a recipient of goodwill: They’re more like a partner that helps them make a difference in the community that serves them.

On 19 June 2021, the team paid yet another visit to the drop-in centre. This time around, Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini donated 70 Snackster pizzas, as well as pizza flat bread. When the team made the drop-off, the centre had just prepared soup for its visitors. The Doughnation came at precisely the right time, giving the centre’s charges something to enjoy with their soup.

A big thank you to the team for constantly strengthening its relationship with an organisation that seeks to uplift its community.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE THROUGH DOUGHNATION

Winter has hit Mzansi’s shore and due to the current economic climate caused by the global pandemic, COVID-19, many families have been left out in the cold.

ogether Debonairs Pizza Dunoon, Montague Gardens, Athlone, Gugulethu, Khayelitsha, Kromboom, Vangate Mall, and Wynberg raised R30 000 in cash! Their relief efforts were in collaboration with Fashion Fusion and local partners who raised an additional R20 000 to go towards winter blankets. Currently, they have donated a total of 650 blankets.

These blankets will go to various charities in and around Cape Town, mainly in Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Athlone, and Dunoon. Some of the charities that have benefitted from the relief efforts are: Zusakhe, Nyakallo Orphans and Childcare, Ithemba Community Old Age Home, Safety Home, Erica Place, Rainbow Foundation, and Ikhaya Loxolo.

Thanks to the amazing kindness of Debonairs Pizza teams, many families will be warm during the winter months. We’d also like to thank you, our Debonairs Pizza fam. Your continued support and love for Debonairs Pizza, makes Doughnation stories such as this one possible. Together, we make a difference through Doughnation.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA NELSPRUIT IS A GOOD SPORT

Taking part in extra mural activities not only strengthens the body, but also strengthens character. Discipline, patience, and perseverance are just a few of the countless character-building traits learnt on the sports field.

Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing believes sports is a powerful tool for youth development. That’s why the team sponsored the Hoêrskool Nelspruit Cricket and Golf Day hosted at Mbombela Golf Club. The day served as a fundraising event for Hoêrskool Nelspruit Cricket Academy, an institution that coaches and sponsors young cricket players from all over Lowveld, Mpumalanga. The budding cricket stars are handpicked and given the opportunity to hone their talents by being provided with quality infrastructure and professional training.

The golf players were served FREE pizza throughout the day, courtesy of Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing.

CHARITY IS A PRIORITY FOR DEBONAIRS PIZZA JANE FURSE PLAZA

It’s often said that it takes a big heart to shape little minds. If there was ever a class of people who perfectly embody that saying; it’s the men and women who work at childcare centres. They do so much more than keep an eye on the little ones entrusted to them. They’re the first to witness some of their pupils’ first developmental milestones, comfort them when they’re distressed, and plant the seeds of lifelong learning.

Debonairs Pizza Jane Furse Plaza not only appreciates the work done by crèches, but believes in offering them a helping hand wherever possible. That’s why the team donated food parcels to Little Angels Crèche, a day care centre in their community. The food parcels consisted of pizza, flatbread, juice, cold drinks, and margarine.

Well done to the team for helping the children in their community thrive. Doughnations like this help create the best conditions for children to have a successful future.

PARTNERING UP TO HELP THE COMMUNITY

The team from Debonairs Pizza Valley Hyper believes in helping the community. That’s why they regularly make Doughnations to organisations and charities that help those in need.

This time around, the team partnered with the Nelspruit Community Forum, a part of the Mpumalanga Leadership Foundation, to share some Doughnation love and support with the community. They baked 60 Doughnation flatbreads and delivered them to the Damascus Farm Support Programme.

SCHOOL FEEDING SCHEME GETS A BOOST FROM DEBONAIRS PIZZA WHITE RIVER

What makes a good learning environment? Most people would respond to that question by mentioning factors such as an engaging teacher, a structurally sound building, and a good syllabus. But nutrition is also a crucial part of effective learning. Unfortunately, too many pupils are familiar with the frustration of trying to feed your mind on an empty stomach.

Debonairs Pizza White River believes that hunger has no place in a classroom. That’s why the team baked and delivered flatbread to Boschrand Primary School in Msholozi. The Doughnation was meant to assist the school’s nutrition programme, an initiative created to prepare meals for vulnerable pupils.

A big thank you to the Debonairs Pizza White River team for helping to build a positive learning environment.

GIVING MORE TO THE CHILDREN AT THE BUHLE BESIVE CENTRE

Twice a week, Debonairs Pizza Nkomazi Plaza delivers fresh Doughnation flatbread to the Buhle Besive Stimulation Centre. The centre is a care and learning facility for differently-abled children and the elderly. The staff and caregivers look after 20 children and 32 elderly residents.

Debonairs Pizza Nkomazi Plaza has a long-standing relationship with the centre and wanted to give them something more with their Doughnation. Over and above their biweekly delivery of flatbread, the team also donated 5 wheelchairs to the centre! This will go a long way in improving the quality of life for the children, especially the young children who are used to spending the day lying down on a mattress.

Thanks to your continued support of Debonairs Pizza, we can give back to organisations such as the Buhle Besive Stimulation Centre time and time again.

It’s easy to appreciate the work of community centres while forgetting the people who labour tirelessly to keep these institutions running. Caregivers are tasked with the massive responsibility of ensuring community centres run like a well-oiled machine.

Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing appreciates the work done by Woodhouse Community Centre. So, the team showed its gratitude the best way it knows how: By baking and delivering bread to the centre. The team considered the Doughnation a special order of the highest priority, putting extra effort into making this token of appreciation. The fact that the bread will feed the less fortunate is a massive payoff for the work the team put into making the Doughnation.

Thanks to the team for the gesture of goodwill they extended to an organisation set on making an impact in its community.

Keep up the good work, Woodhouse Community Centre

DOUGHNATION: ALL IN A DAY’S WORK FOR DEBONAIRS PIZZA ELUKWATINI

Day-to-day living is not always simple for differently-abled people. This is why group homes play such a vital role in our society. Apart from making sure its residents are safe, clothed, and appropriately fed, it also gives them something far more valuable – a sense of community.

Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini understands that a group home is just that – a home. The team believes that home is not just made of bricks and cement, but love, memories, and laughter. That’s why the team visited Cheshire Home for the Disabled to give the residents something to smile about. The team donated 50 Chicken Snackster pizzas, much to the delight of the home’s charges. Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini’s guiding principle is simple: If it made the most vulnerable members of the community smile, it was well worth the effort.

A big thank you to the Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini team for adding to the many sweet memories that serve as the solid foundation for a true home.

SOMETHING AMAZING FOR THE SANDERSON FAMILY

Donating to community centres and charitable organisations is an admirable venture. However, it’s equally important to change the lives of individual households wherever possible. After all, communities are made of families, and the impact of the generosity showed to them has a cumulative effect on the wellbeing of society at large.

Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni Plaza paid another visit to the Sanderson family. The team came bearing its usual gift of freshly baked bread, but they also had a little more to give. This time around, the team also donated toiletries, tea, sugar, and milk to see the family through the chilly season.

Well done to Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni for going the extra mile to support a family in need.

HUNGER HAS NO PLACE IN DEBONAIRS PIZZA EMOYENI’S WORLD

Studies show that the world produces enough food to feed all 7.5 billion of its inhabitants. Despite this, statistics released by the World Food Programme show that 8.9% of the world’s population goes to bed hungry. That’s 690 million people heading to bed with the sharp pain of hunger pangs in their stomach.

Debonairs Pizza Emoyeni believes that working towards a hunger-free world isn’t a frivolous pursuit of pie in the sky, but an achievable goal that starts with ending hunger in their community. That’s why the team donated loaves of bread to feed the young residents of Buhle Besive Home-Based Care Centre. The team has been making these Doughnations for the past five years, and does not plan to stop anytime soon.

Well done to the Debonairs Pizza Emoyeni team for doing its part to fill the empty tummies in its community.

SUPPORTING A FAMILY IN NEED

Debonairs Pizza Matsulu continues to support and give back to the community. The team paid a special Doughnation visit to Joseph and his siblings. The young family of three boys and a girl live alone in a neglected house. They don’t have an adult to look after them so the children have to look after each other

To help the family get through the month, the Debonairs Pizza Matsulu team donated groceries and toiletries to the family. They received 2x 5kg mixed chicken pieces, 1 box of teabags, 2x 10kg maize meal, salt, 2x 2l cooking oil, macaroni, 2kg rice, 2x toothpaste, 2x boxes of sanitary pads, 2x body lotions and 7x cans of baked beans.

BOITSHEPO DAY CARE CENTRE GETS A TASTY DOUGHNATION FROM DEBONAIRS

Early childhood care not only plays an important role in a child's development, but also provides valuable support to families with young children.

A DOUGHNATION FOR THE CHILDREN AND CARETAKERS FROM DEBONAIRS PIZZA NELSPRUIT CROSSING

The Woodhouse Community Crèche is a centre in Mataffin that provides daily meals and a caring environment for a number of children in the local community. It started back in 2011, when Amon and Jeanette Ngwamba decided to use their pension money in order to take care of children in need.

With only an open fire and 2 gas burners, they feed approximately 200 school children and 80 toddlers each day. That’s a lot of mouths to feed! So, the team from Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing Doughnated pizza flat breads to help them with their efforts.

The Doughnation arrived just in time for lunch, and the children and caretakers got to enjoy something extra that day. Thank you to the Debonairs Pizza Nelspruit Crossing team for flying the Doughnation flag proudly!

DEBONAIRS PIZZA KABOKWENI PLAZA ARE LOCAL HEROES

Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini did things a little differently on Valentine’s Day. Instead of just celebrating with their loved ones, they decided to share the love with the residents at Chief JM Dlamini Cheshire Home. The home houses and cares for 50 people living with disabilities.

Before lockdown, the team used to visit the home regularly, but due to COVID-19 restrictions they couldn’t. So, they felt that the month of love was the perfect time to rekindle their connection. The team lovingly prepared two heart-shaped Triple-Decker pizzas, and pizza flat bread, to surprise the residents. Everyone was very surprised and excited to see the team after such a long time.

After such a lengthy absence it felt good for the Debonairs Pizza Elukwatini team to visit the residents at the home and give back to their community. Thanks to the support of the local community, this and more Doughnations are made possible.

BACK TO SUPPORT THE THOBELA SISTERS

A few months back, the Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni Plaza team met the resilient and determined sisters of the Thobela family. The family consists of six young women who rely on each other for support.

In October, the team went back to visit the sisters in Nkohlakalo, and they didn’t go empty handed. They brought sanitary, cosmetic and personal hygiene products for the sisters to use. No Doughnation is complete without something to eat, so the team also brought freshly-baked flatbread with a tasty filling for the family to enjoy.

The sisters were very grateful for the Doughnation and excitedly shouted, ‘Siyabonga!’ to the team as they left. We would like to extend their shout outs of thanks to you, the Debonairs Pizza fam. Thanks to your support, this and other amazing Doughnation stories are possible.

Gogo Sithole is a pensioner who lives with her 2 grandchildren. The family gets by every month with the help of a grant and additional funds that they receive from collecting empty tins and boxes for recycling in Malelane.

On one of their trips to the recycling plant, our delivery man asked the family about their situation. He was moved by their plight so he shared the story with the rest of the Debonairs Pizza Nkomazi team. The team put together a food parcel for the family to show their support.

THE ELDERLY IN ELSPARK GET TREATED BY DEBONAIRS PIZZA

Debonairs Pizza Elspark did two Doughnation drives to help feed the elderly in their community.

Their first stop was the Graceland Old Age Home. Here they planned to provide food, vegetable and fruit baskets to 50 pensioners.

So the team quickly packed a couple more baskets so everyone could share in the Doughnation joy.

Their next stop was the Kowa Pienaar Old Age Home where they wanted to treat the staff and residents to 82 Pizzas and cold drinks. At the last minute they found out that one of the residents had a birthday coming up and it wasn’t a small one either. This Gogo was turning 100! Without thinking twice the team bought a present, some flowers and even topped a rainbow celebration cake with 100 candles. This made the day truly special for an amazing Gogo.

Clearly nothing phases the Debonairs Pizza Elspark team. You guys are taking amazing to a whole new level!

It was a big project to coordinate all the teams and make sure they got to all the schools they needed to, but all the effort was worth it when they saw the huge smiles and heard the gasps of excitement from the kids.

Well done to everybody involved in this massive Doughnation!

SHARING THE DOUGHNATION LOVE WITH KABOKWENI

Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni Plaza is one of our most prolific Doughnators. Whether they’re helping out at the Zwel Kids Club or recognising their local police service, their generous spirit is genuinely inspiring. This time they visited the Bethesda organisation in their local community of Kabokweni. Every Monday to Friday the organisation provides cooked meals and a safe place for kids to play after school. So the team decided to lend a helping hand. They arrived at the centre with burgers made from Doughnation flatbread, juice and a whole lot of clothing for the kids. Everybody was so thankful for the kind gesture. Special thanks go out to the community of Kabokweni. Thanks to you and your support for Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni Plaza, we get to carry on making a difference with Doughnation.

DEBONAIRS NKOMAZI IS HELPING KIDS IN NEED

Tragedy struck the Debonairs Pizza Nkomazi team last year. One of their drivers was involved in a car accident and sadly passed away. He was survived by his 2 kids, who are both of school-going age. In order to help them, the team raised funds to buy full uniforms for the kids. They attend different schools so it wasn’t an easy task. They succeeded though and managed to purchase 2 pullovers, 2 pairs of shoes and socks, 4 pairs of trousers, and 6 shirts. When they took the uniforms to the kids, they also brought along a large pizza. Well done to the Nkomazi team for honouring the memory of your team member and helping these kids in need. A massive thank you goes out to everybody who helped raise funds.

The team from Debonairs Pizza Kabokweni Plaza are laying the foundations for the Hele family to rise up. We’re really proud of this amazing team who are keeping the spirit of Doughnation alive in their community.

The team couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show them some love. They Doughnated 10 pallets of bricks (purchased from a local supplier), 20 bags of cement, window frames and door frames. The project is almost finished, so they also sent their drivers along with 6x20L buckets of paint to make it look amazing before the brothers move in.
