How will my donation help?
We have 19 senior clubs across the Cape Metropole, supporting 2,000 elderly citizens on a daily basis. At the clubs, seniors receive health checks and take part in various activities from outdoor exercises to income-generation projects; they also receive two warm meals every day. But these clubs close over the festive season, allowing our staff to spend Christmas with their families.
Over this time, elderly club members will be at home and will have to provide food for themselves and their families. This can be a huge financial burden for the elderly, who are often breadwinners in their family, feeding children and grandchildren with money from their monthly pension of just R1,600.
To relieve this burden, we wish to give these seniors a Christmas food hamper to take home over the festive season. We are calling on the public to brighten up a senior’s Christmas by donating R50 towards a food hamper.
Visit our Facebook page to dedicate your hamper to a grandparent or elderly person who has influenced your life and nominate a friend to do the same.
