Winter Warmer Update
Every year, during winter, we embark on a fundraising drive to purchase blankets for the disadvantaged members of our community. This year our winter warmer drive is focused on distributing blankets to the families of the children in our pre-school and to the beneficiaries of our soup kitchen.
Our target was to raise funds to purchase 700 blankets so that we could give each beneficiary two blankets to warm them through this winter. We have, to date, managed to hand out in excess of 1500 blankets all thanks to our amazing sponsors. The blankets have been distributed to our children, soup kitchen beneficiaries and numerous creches in and around the Daveyton informal settlements.
There are still many cold days ahead but we will endeavour to bring warmth to many more disadvantaged members of our community.
MANDELA Day was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said: “It is in your hands now.”
