Welcome to the Love Howick Street Store
The Love Howick Street Store concept is aimed at meeting the basic needs (food and clothing) of those who are unemployed or have a monthly income of R2000 or less.
“As on organisation, Love Howick is committed to dealing with poverty in our area, and addressing some of the social ills plaguing the poor in our city“
– Gary Flint project leader
how it works
The Street Store will operate using a ‘swop shop’ system whereby customers will be expected to bring in recycling from their community in exchange for tokens that they can use to shop for clothing and food items.
This approach will ensure that we give everyone the responsibility of keeping the city of Howick clean as well as meeting some of the basic needs of the poor in our community.
