Member Organisations’ Needs

Goods in Kind and Volunteer Needs

Valcare coordinates a membership network consisting of hundreds of nonprofit organisations in the Cape Winelands.

Many of our member organisations have ongoing physical and volunteer needs – big and small. We are always on the look-out for individuals, corporates and foundations to take hands and help where they can to donate goods or time.

Take a look at the current list of needs, submitted by our member organisations on a regular basis. Get in touch with us to get connected to the need that you would like to help with at admin@valcare.org.za.
