09/05/2012 - Winter Warmth Launch in AlexandraPeople from the Alexandra area began queueing early in the morning to be part of the Winter Warmer launch. The recipients enjoyed a hot meal and aid items were distributed with the help of our ground patrol team from 94.7 Highveld Stereo. Amongst the recipients were children from two nursery schools who were thrilled to recieve new furniture, sang, danced and played while the distribution took place.
The hi-lite of the day was witnessing a young girl, who had to be carried into the venue because she cannot walk, receive her very own wheelchair. Her face beamed with joy as her friends, all part of a group of disabled children in the community, congratulated her and shared in her joy. Hearts were warmed by this and a sense of merriment filled the atmosphere.
Alexandra's Philanthropist, Linda Twala and Dhali Thambo graced the event with their presence. To kick off the Winter Warmth 2012 campaign the following items were distributed:
- 1000 Blankets
