Uchumi Supermarkets has partnered with the donations platform www.Sponsor.co.ke to enable Kenyans to donate Uchumi CarePacks for families in need. The initiative is a proactive move by Uchumi Supermarkets in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to ensure safety of staff and beneficiaries as they distribute the much needed donations.
Uchumi shall receive donations directly through MPESA, pack and deliver the CarePacks to families and humanitarian agencies. Some of the families and organisations such as children homes shall safely collect the CarePacks from the Uchumi branches.
The public can sponsor Uchumi CarePacks of various value on www.sponsor.co.ke. The donation shall be received directly on the Uchumi Supermarkets MPESA Till Number and along with a report from the Sponsor.co.ke platform. Uchumi would pack the CarePacks and deliver or invite the beneficiaries to collect safely at one of their branches.
