NEWSLETTER VOL 5 2019     (online version)


Firstly, we want to thank everybody that made contributions in June 2019. In advance we want also to thank each person who is going to assist in the future this project because without your assistance this project cannot be a success.

May 2019 – donors:

  • Uncle Hennie & Petro Vorster
  • Bruce Middleton

At the moment our food bank is empty as can be and even our emergency stock is depleted. We desperately need any kind of food donations. During the last two months we didn’t received any food donations. We will not be able to give food parcels to any of our families at the end of June.

The following items are needed very urgently:

* food (any type fresh, frozen, tin food and perishable & non-perishable items)

* meat (mince, chicken, pork, beef, wors, sausages, etc.)

* toiletries (toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, sanitary products, razors)

* general cleaning products (refuse bags, dishwashing liquid, washing powder)

* baby products (nappies, milk formula, baby food). 

This month we have our 67 Minute-Project (on 18 July we are celebrating International Mandela Day) were you can give 67 minutes of your time to do good for others. We are asking that you give on this day one or more food item, even if it is as small as like a packet of soup or a packet of two minute noodles, etc. 

We are also starting this time of year with our Christmas Treasure Box Project (this is only for school children under 18 as well as elderly persons above 60 years). We choose to start it in July to go along with the theme “Christmas in July”. The closing date is 23 December 2019 and the name list is available at: hannelie.skenkings@gmail.com OR sc@kospakkiessc.co.za

Please also visit our new webpage at: www.kospakkiessc.co.za

Due to a shortage of donations certain projects had to be discontinued and are only the following projects still on-going.

We also want to thank Bruce Middleton for our new email address, webpage and for handling our newsletters and much more. 

We also want to welcome Marelize Kapp as one of our new drop-off point in Dana bay.

*** We are still looking for a second persons in Still bay as well as Riversdale AND two persons in Gouritz. You must be financially stable, and must have WhatsApp and internet connection. If you are interested please send me a email to: hannelie.skenkings@gmail.com ***
