PSL Club helps out in Mamelodi.

One of the DSTV Premiership teams based in Mpumalanga has took some time out on Saturday and decided to give back to the community of Mamelodi on 'World Food Day'

As a football club that is more than just a business, at times it can be the few role models in a specific area and that is why a club’s social responsibility is very key to makes sure that the fans are okay at all times to keep them rallying behind them when they hit the football pitch.

 

Giving back to the community at times involves bringing many people together and working toward a single cause, a single objective. These large-scale events always raise awareness of a local need (hunger and poverty) and encourage local unity among all the community members.


In TS Galaxy’s latest Instagram posts, the club has showed off local citizens with groceries including Oil, vegetables, maize meal and more necessities and the captain of the club opened up about the event.

“TS Galaxy Football Club has celebrated World Food Day in style today by giving back to the community of Mamelodi.” 

 “The club together with Entokozweni Resource Centre-Miag in partnership with the Gauteng Department of Social Development embarked on a journey to give back to the members of the community who comes from a disadvantaged background.”  

Other items in thise packages included sunlight soap, some tin food and rice that should help the community members in their daily lives. Stats SA stated in its 2020 poverty lines report that more than a quarter of the South African population were living below the poverty line back in 2015.  


For context, that means that around 13.8 million South African citizens were living off less than R624 a month which makes it even more important that clubs help out those in need if they have the finances to do so.
