Airports Company South Africa, Cape Town International Airport (ACSA CTIA) is once again contributing to helping those who are disadvantaged. The airport has partnered with two leading regional radio stations, Good Hope FM and Heart FM, with a donation of R50 000 in aid of supporting those who are less fortunate.
The airport hosted Good Hope FM’s “Keeping Cape Town Warm” campaign on Wednesday, 31 July 2013 from 09:00 to 12:00 midday. The purpose of the campaign is to assist those who are in need as they face the chilly winter days and nights in Cape Town with little or nothing at all to keep them warm. Cape Town International Airport has purchased jackets, jerseys, shoes, warm tops and track suits as well as perishable goods worth R40 000 to be given to those most in need through the radio station. “As an airport operator, we value giving back to those who are underprivileged, so contributing towards making a difference is very important to us. It is vital to be mindful of our surrounding community’s challenges and find ways in which we can assist, that is why we have joined hands with Good Hope FM and Heart FM to assist in making a difference” said Deborah Francis, Acting Communications Manager at Cape Town International Airport.
Another exciting initiative which Cape Town International Airport supported was Heart FM’s winter warmer campaign. The airport donated R10 000 worth of windbreakers to assist school children during the winter months.
Cape Town International Airport would like to take this opportunity to thank the Airline Operators Committee for donating blankets to the value of R6700 to the “Keeping Cape Town Warm” initiative. As an airport community we continue to assist communities around Cape Town and aspire to make a significant difference.
