The World’s First Rent Free Charity Store

Cape Town's First Rent Free Pop Up store

The Street Store is the world’s first rent-free, premises-free, pop-up charity store, giving away clothes to the poor, mahala. This pop-up is made of posters on the sidewalk, and runs entirely on donations. It’s pretty simple: you bring clothes and shoes you don’t wear, and the homeless help themselves.

The first Street Store happened yesterday, at 2 Somerset Road, De Waterkant (outside the Salesian Institute), from 06h30 – 19h00.

This is what it looks like:
