AMANZIMTOTI’s drop-off for the Santa Shoebox project was a huge success, largely due to the generosity of the community, reports Liana Erlank co-ordinator for our area.

“We were able to reach our total of 531 boxes and even had some extras to help Durban Central drop-off cover some of their shortages.

“We thank everyone who pledged a box and a big thank you to the staff at Toyota who pledged a total of 138 boxes, Remax who did 84 and Amanzimtoti Primary a total of 280,” Erlank added.

She expressed her appreciation to volunteers who gave up their free time to assist in this worthy cause and Sam and Wimpie Botha from Clearwater Spur for sponsoring their lunch.

Erlank thanked the Fever for the coverage, saying it made a huge difference.
