ECR again brings toys and joy to kids

2007-11-27 00:00

The campaign, which has been running for the last eight years, has made a “huge difference” in the lives of children in hospitals.

“Over the next three months East Coast Radio’s Toy Story campaign will deliver tens of thousands of toys and thousands of food parcels across KZN.

“All the monies raised are used to purchase food parcels. The food parcels feed a family of four to six, for approximately six weeks. The food parcels are created by the Gift of the Givers, who partner with East Coast Radio on Toy Story.

“These food parcels are designed with the family’s daily needs in mind and contain maize, rice, beans, oil, milk powder, soaps, soup, sugar, teabags, porridge and Ready Food, among other items,” said the station.

Toys received are sorted according to gender and age.

According to East Coast Radio, “each new toy finds an appropriate home, whether it is with a child at one of the 63 government hospitals, or one of the many orphanages or child-headed households throughout our province”.
