Each One, Bring One | Mandela Day 2021

Hatfield Church Blog 9 Comments

A small action can make a big difference – especially when multiplied by the size of our community!

18 July is Mandela Day! As South Africans, let’s join the movement of small actions for positive change.

Each One, Bring One is our drive to take tangible action against poverty – one of Madiba’s core values.

We challenge you – our community – to donate one essential item to our Hatfield Warehouse. Through our partner ministries, we’ll distribute these items to struggling families throughout our city.

Count me in!

18 July (Mandela Day) to 30 July: Drop off any item/s from the list below at our church reception on Sundays or weekdays (office hours).

Imagine how many families we can impact if we each bring one thing.


  • Tinned food (fish, corned meat, baked beans)
  • Maize meal
  • Soup packets
  • Cooking oil
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Rice
  • Tea (especially Rooibos)
  • Soya mince
  • Macaroni
  • Creamer
  • Jam


  • Children’s clothing (most needed)
  • Men’s clothing
  • Women’s clothing

Cleaning Material

  • Body soap
  • Dish washing soap
  • Toiletries

Watch this space to see the collective effect of community in action!

  1. I would like to contribute towards making a difference in our fellow citizens lives and hope God will help us revive our guttered country.

  2. Absolutely …this has become one of our traditions. I would also like to encourage other to use this as an opportunity to also clean up your kids closets if you cannot afford to buy any of those items.

    Keep safe and stay blessed.
