Yes, it is THAT time of year again!!!
September is around the corner, people and that means the namelists of Santa Shoebox beneficiary facilities will go live on the website.
You will then be able to select the child/children you wish to bless with a gift this year. However, you need not wait until then….YOU CAN REGISTER AS SUPPORTER NOW!!
In the meantime you can assist your local Santa Shoebox team by DONATING ITEMS for the boxes. These extra items will be used to fill boxes we may need for back-up (sometimes the facilities didn’t take into account new admissions to schools/creches, and those children will be left empty handed, as their names do not appear in the lists on the website)…hence the extra boxes.
Below a list of the items we still need:
- Stationery and educational supplies (pens, pencils, crayons, etc)
- Bars of soap
- Toothpaste and toothbrushes
- Sweets and snacks
Please note that we are especially short of teenage items (clothing, toys).
In addition to the items, the following will also be useful to the team:
- Empty shoeboxes
- Wrapping paper
- Zip lock bags
- Rubber bands
All donations within the Pretoria Metropolitan Area will be picked up.
Looking forward to another successful season!
