THE Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society (TCW) held a Donate a Can drive at Golden Sun Supermarket at the weekend.

The drive was aimed at collecting donations of groceries for around 100 Christmas hampers which will be distributed to needy families in the community.

TCW social worker manager Jo Moodley said some of the items collected included rice, oil, canned food and beans.

"We collected mostly nonperishables so the items in the hampers will assist the families for a few months," said Moodley.
"We are also going to add some treats like chips and sweets for the children so these families will have some treats for the little ones over the festive period."

The hampers will be handed out to the needy at a function which will be held near Christmas to treat them to meals ahead of the festive season.

"The festive period is a fun and happy time for everyone and these hampers will go a long way to helping spread the joy and festivities to the less fortunate," said Moodley.

Moodley thanked the Golden Sun Supermarket, eThekwini Hospital and the community for helping make the drive possible and for their donations over the last four months.

"The contributions are greatly appreciated and on behalf of Tongaat Child and Family Welfare I would like to thank everyone who has been involved," said Moodley.
