Light a fire this winter with Optimi Drive

By Optimi | 14 Jul, 2022

Optimi Drive

The Optimi Group has partnered with the registered non-profit Feed A Homeless Homie to collect and donate essential winter items to help those in need.

Optimi CEO, Stefan Botha, explains the reasoning behind the initiative: “While the Optimi Group is focused on providing accessible learning solutions, we also care about the accessibility of warm clothing and essential items for those who need it most. We want to make a difference to the lives of our fellow South Africans this winter and help them keep warm as the temperatures drop”.

Feed A Homeless Homie was founded in 2015 by a team of students at the University of Pretoria who saw a need in their community. The youth-led organisation ensures that Gauteng’s homeless community receives access to warm clothes, food, sanitary products, and other essentials. They will be distributing all the collected items to their network.
