The Street Store – Somerset West

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Together with The Street Store organisation we, the Western Cape team, are hosting the first Street Store in Somerset West together with the Somerset West Night Shelter.
What is a Street Store? The world’s first rent-free, premises-free, free “pop-up clothing store” for the poor, found entirely on the street and curated by you. Every country has a lot of have-nots. But also has a lot of haves. But how do we remind the haves, that the have-nots need help? We need a middle ground, so we’re taking to the street. The Street Store.
Made just out of posters, you hang up donated clothes and drop shoes into boxes, then the homeless help themselves, because you have something the homeless don’t, clothes you choose not to wear.
