Christmas Boxes (December 2011)
Just Us 4 Children joined Greyville Place of Restoration with their Christmas Box Project. A shoe box may not change the world BUT to many children it will make the world of difference.
This project gave the more privileged the opportunity to fill an ordinary shoe box with supplies for the less privileged children. The gifts were given regardless of nationality or religious belief – they were given just because it was Christmas.
Pyjamas Please Project (2011)
The “Pyjamas Please” project has been a wonderful success and we would like to send a special thanks to the many people who have donated pyjamas. We received hundreds of pairs of pyjamas, warm clothing and blankets which we were able to distribute to children’s homes, crèches and places of safety, prior to the extremely cold weather.
Many of the children we distributed to didn’t even own a jersey and, through the goodness and kindness of all our supporters, we were able to give all these children three or four pairs of clothing and/or pyjamas to keep them warm this winter. This project was such a success that we intend on making this an annual event. We hope that next year we are able to double our collections!
Thank you once again to all supporters!
Holiday Club (April 2011)
Scripture Union, in conjunction with Greyville Place of Restoration and Just Us 4 Children, organised a free holiday club during the April 2011 school holidays at Addington Primary School for all children living in the Durban Central and Point Area.
The purpose of the Holiday Club was to provide an alternative for the kids in this area to keep them off the street and out of harm’s way. The club was very well attended by the children in the area and a fantastic time was had by children and volunteers alike.
