Dear Mrs Warne and the Grade 7s, Grade 5s and Grade 4s
We would like to send a special thank you to all of these pupils from Oakhill school for their generous donations of both food and money to the men (and a few women) who wait for work in the parking lot near Loerie Park for work.
The men were absolutely delighted with the contributions of food and they felt excited to select these food items that are such a luxury for them. The crates of food were laid out and the men walked past and one by one selected an item for themselves and the said that it felt like being at “Pick n Pay”. With your generous donations, they were able to select 3 items each in the end. It really felt like Christmas with all the happy smiles.
Your contribution of R509 will be used towards buying bread and other items so that we are able to provide them with a meal on weekday mornings.
Thank you, once again, for helping your community in such a concrete way.
(On behalf of the Labour Pool Feeding Scheme)
