The community needs your help
Due to the lockdown many homes are facing hard times.
The Grassy Park Empowerment forum, Grassy Park Community Police Forum and Grassy Park SAPS together with New Horizon Civic Association, have embarked on a drive to help ease some of the challenges with food parcels. These parcels will be delivered to those in need. To achieve such a venture we are appealing for donations.
The Grassy Park Empowerment Forum is a registered NPO and is tax compliant with a PBO Number.
