Child and Youth Care Centre appeal

2016-06-22 06:00

FOR the past 96 years or so Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre has provided a haven and a future for hundreds of children.
Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre hereby asks the community to donate old or new clothes to their centre.

Many children enter the gates of the Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre with no hope, no dreams and no future. Some have been abused and mistreated and are placed in centre's care by a court order.

To afford these children the opportunity to heal the wrongs of the past and focus on their future the centre has adopted a holistic care programme where the children are accommodated in seven separate houses, in a homely atmosphere.

They receive three nutritious meals daily, attend school and participate in sports.

However, the centre is currently facing financial strains and appeals to the community to donate both boys and girls clothing for children from four to 14 or donate cash into our bank account. Reference on your deposit slip is “Clothing fund”.
