Sandwich drive aims to keep kids in school

2019-04-09 06:01

Youth organisation, Frontiers calls on community members to lend a helping hand in feeding kids in Kensington and Factreton.

This comes after members of the organisation saw a need to feed children from underprivileged families who often go to school on an empty stomach.

Chairperson of the organisation, Cheslyn Steenberg, said the sandwich drive aims to reassure kids that the community cares for them and they need to stay in school. Steenberg urged businesses in the community to come on board and help.

He said the response from members of the community has been overwhelming. Items needed to run the sandwich drive successfully include bread, spread, tuna, eggs and mayonnaise among others. The drive runs daily from 13:00 to 16:00 at 24 Patrys Plein in Factreton.
