TOYS needed URGENTLY for LFCT Christmas Elf Deliveries
Folks, we are running out of time to get all our gifts ready for the LFCT Christmas Elf Project. We start doing Christmas Elf Deliveries at the end of November so that we are able to include Little Fighters who might be well enough to be sent home for the Holiday Season in our Gifting.
The Christmas Elf Project provides Children with Cancer with Christmas presents which many of them would not have otherwise.
For many children this will be the only Christmas presents they will get. Apart from supporting Individual Children with Cancer, their siblings also get Christmas Gifts and many of these destitute Families are also gifted with a full month’s worth of groceries so that they too can share in the Festive Season without having to worry about where the next meal will come from.
We have so far received some great donations, including some wonderful donations from the Old Mutual Training Department Staff, Pinelands; Fairmont High School, Kenridge Durbanville; Protea Hoogte Kleuterskool/Nasorg; Metrorail Staff, Rosebank, and various other donors.
THANK YOU ONE AND ALL – YOU ROCK!!!!
To date we have received sufficient Santa Hats, Christmas Crackers and Snack Pack content, and also have enough groceries for all our Families for December, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
What We Desperately Need
We are desperately short of TOYS as Christmas Gifts for #LittleFighters in several hospital wards.
Bloemfontein: 50 Gifts needed
Johannesburg & Pretoria (4 wards): 30 Boy Gifts, ages 4-10 and 15 Boy Teenager Gifts still needed
200 Christmas Gifts, all ages, for #LittleFighters and their Siblings in the Families we Support on a regular basis.
500 large ziplock/zipseal bags in which to pack snacks
200 Sturdy Cardboard boxes in which to pack groceries as well as all our hospital deliveries for #ChristmasElf.
Suggestions for Gifts:
PLEASE NOTE: Toys must be new due to the high infection risk to Children with Cancer due to impaired immune systems.
To drop off Christmas Gifts with our Johannesburg Representative, please make arrangements with Katrin via 083 655 2857.
To drop off Christmas Gifts with our Durban Representative, please make arrangements with Vasie via 073 504 3532
Please send a text or whatsapp message, as both these Representatives have normal day jobs, and cannot always answer their cell phones while working. They will respond to messages.
Support in Bloemfontein is rather low, so all Gifts for Bloemfontein should come to Paarl – we will pack and send them off to our Volunteer to take to the ward.
Please contact Mandie on 073 729 6155 if you would like to help to sort out these 50 #LittleFighters with Christmas Gifts.
