Donate, don’t dump

THOSE boxes, plastic trays, odd bits of cutlery, and so on, it is amazing how they pile up and then you ask what to do with them all.

The answer “don’t dump, donate”. Its amazing how so-called junk can be used in so many positive forms

Many people chuck out useful items, or do not know what to do with things they no longer use - but there is always a use for everything, maybe not in your home, but in the next home.

Dulcie Jacobz has set up a distribution system for a range of projects in Greytown.
Items required include clothing, linen, pillows­, blankets, curtains, kitchen items, crockery, cutlery, plastic ware, second-hand clothing, shoes, toys, books, sports items, puzzles, empty ice cream containers etc., as well as toiletries­, soap, toilet soap, toothpaste, tooth brushes, old handbags, tog bags and so on.

If you have items, which you do not know if they are suitable, phone Dulcie for information, and also for delivery details.

Projects that will benefit from this initiative include Arcadia, Letcee, Greytown Child and Youth Centre, Khayalami, rape victims, uBuhle­ Bomvoti Special School and Umvoti Aids Centre.

This is a “one-man project”, items come in slowly, and parcels handed over may be small, but every little bit helps.

If you can help in any way, contact Dulcie on 082 437 5195 after hours to arrange drop-off or collection points.
