On August 8th, over 30 volunteers gathered at Universal Lodge to assemble 7,000 items into 1,000 packages. This group included Brothers from across the Cape, wives, children, teachers, a school principal and several community members. It took 85 minutes to assemble 1,000 packages, load them into waiting vehicles, sweep up and enjoy pizza.
