As a company in Centurion, we felt that it was our responsibility to give back to our local community. We implemented a blanket drive where we would collect as many blankets as possible which we could then distribute to charities and non-profit organisations in the greater Centurion area.
We challenged each company to get their staff to donate a blanket or two in their personal capacity, and then for the company to pledge that they will match the personal donations.
On Friday, 12 June 2015, we gathered at Coffee@Oxford Coffee Shop, where we counted all the blankets we have collected.
We would like to send out a HUGE thank you to each and everyone that made this drive possible as this was our first Blanket Drive and we collected 457 blankets. These blankets were all handed over to Moeggesukkel, a non-profit company based in Raslouw, that will distibute them to people in need this winter.
Of course we had individual and a company prize that was drawn and announced on Friday, 12 June 2015. Congratulations to all our winners.
We are looking forward to work with all of you again with our Rhino and Toy Drive later the year.
As they say: “Let your good deeds be like rain, drop a little everywhere!”
