A Pop-Up Street Store That Offers Clothes To The Homeless

To help the homeless, M&C Saatchi Abel and the Haven Night Shelter Welfare Organisation have set up a pop-up store along Cape Town’s streets, displaying clothes so that the homeless can pick them up.

Made up of cardboard boxes, some of these displays have holes in them so that passers-by can hang their unwanted or unworn clothes on them. Homeless people would then be able to choose their own clothes from these pop-up displays.

Although many homeless people are given clothes at the shelter, these roadside stores make it easier for people to donate and help those who are less fortunate.


This project is also open source, which means that anyone can set up a pop-up store for the homeless in their city as well.

What do you think—is this an innovative way to help the homeless?
