SANTA’s Reindeers – Vector GOES BEYOND to help spread Christmas joy

Blog,Our Stories - December 13, 2019

As a proudly South African company, RCL FOODS is committed to helping the communities in which we operate throughout the year, and Christmas time is no different.

That’s why we are proud that our very own route-to-market specialist, Vector has once again used their incredible resources to bring Festive cheer to so many underprivileged children in KZN, by delivering thousands of Santa Shoe Boxes.

Each year the Santa Shoebox Project collects and distributes personalised gifts of essential items and treats for underprivileged children throughout South Africa. In 2018, they lost their Logistics partner in Durban and were desperately looking for a team to assist with KZN deliveries. That’s when Vector Logistics stepped up and started delivering Santa Shoeboxes to many underprivileged children. Since then, they have made over 3000 Santa Shoe Box deliveries.


This year, the volunteer outreach team braved the rough weather in remote locations in order to deliver precious cargo to over 2000 little boys and girls in a massive radius from the rural projects of The Valley of a Thousand Hills stretching all the way down to coastal Amanzimtoti.

“We all have a responsibility to protect and support the future generations. Thank you, team for your contribution. Merry Christmas” Said Vector Customer Service Centre manager Sandy Naidoo.

A message from the Santa Shoe Box Team “Without your help and support this would have not been possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. “

On behalf of the CSC a big thank you to Mondli, Luc, Paula, Sandy Naidoo, Karl & Mbali for all your help at the ICC and the Thousand Hills – Ashley Goordin.
