Supporting the communities we work in

December 09, 2012

CHEP is passionate about sustainability and our communities, which is why we only send e-Christmas cards and donate the money we would have spent on printing and posting corporate Christmas cards to a charity. Our teams across the globe support local communities throughout the year and each year we have the difficult task of selecting just one to provide our Christmas card donation to.

This year we will be making our donation to Shiloh Synergy, a charity whose aim is to provide lasting and positive change to the underprivileged children in the Western Cape area of South Africa. CHEP's Cape Town office supports Shiloh Synergy throughout the year in their many community upliftment projects. One of their most impressive projects is a Montessori-type pre-school. The model has worked so well that they are planning on duplicating it with the funds they will be receiving from CHEP.

Shiloh Synergy is able to start making a monumental difference through opening a single classroom that can cater for up to 40 children. All finances donated are ring-fenced for the purpose for which they are donated and CHEP is very proud to be involved in a project that will truly transform the lives of these children.


 Thank you to the children at Shiloh, one of whom hand drew the image used on our e-Christmas card.
