Chas Everitt Cape Town South are delighted that, for the first time, we are able to EXTEND our quarterly hamper project (called Our Mothers Our Fathers) outside of False Bay.
These hampers go to very deserving elderly beneficiaries. We have been working with the great staff and organisers at Meals on Wheels to identify deserving elderly residents in Plumstead / Diep River area building on what we already do in the False Bay area.
Thank you to all who have contributed to making the Spring Hamper possible.
We will start collecting our Christmas Hamper early in November. Donations can be dropped off at Chas Everitt Fish Hoek or Chas Everitt Tokai or Chas Everitt Bergvliet or if you call Eileen on 021 712 5029, we will if there are at least ten items collect contributions from you.
Well done to our many clients and friends who make these quarterly hampers ‘happen’ and the Chas Everitt Cape Town South team who ALL contribute so generously. In particular thanks to our Hamper Co-ordinators, Diep River agent Joan Ross and our Plumstead agents Franlize Fourie and John Gentz.
“Our Mothers Our Fathers” – An odd name? Well, most old people are someone’s mother or someone’s father, yet so many are alone with very little support. Many of them are also simply too proud to ask for help and as a consequence the desperation of their circumstances is hidden.
OMOF was a name chosen to remind us all, that these senior citizens are entitled to dignity and compassion. If you know of such a person who may need to be considered as a beneficiary of the OMOF initiative, rest assured the matter will be handled by Ann with great care and empathy.The OMOF Christmas hamper collection for the most deserving old and destitute people in the False Bay area has started!
You can really help make a difference to this special time of year and we are appealing for those who are prepared to donate to please do so early so we can get the hampers ready by the 10th of December but our volunteers will be delivering on Christmas Eve to make the hampers truly special.
We are also adding a wrapped GIFT inside each hamper to also make it just that much more special.
As usual, the Hamper Collection Progress Bars on our website have been reset to zero!
