Coordinator of the Santa Shoebox Project, and her team hopes to achieve this festive season.

We collect toys, toiletries, new clothes and even stationary, and distribute it to less fortunate kids all across South Africa,” explains Dorette. “What makes this project unique, however, is the fact that the donor knows the name, age and gender of the child beforehand; it is therefore a very personalized gift.”

From 24 to 26 October gifts, toiletries and other basic items, which should be placed in a decorated shoebox, can be dropped off at either the Chinese School in Pretoria East or the Dutch Reformed Church Magalieskruin, near the Kolonnade shopping centre.

To obtain more information or to pledge a “box”, visit www.santashoebox.co.za or call Dorette on 083 784 0204 or 082 788 4311.

John 13:
14 I, your Lord and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set an example for you, so that you will do just what I have done for you.
16 I am telling you the truth: slaves are never greater than their master, and messengers are never greater than the one who sent them.
