April is the month of Easter, and this year StorTown would like to once again spread the joy to S’thandokuhle crèche. The crèche is based in Kwangcolosi, and its name can be roughly translated to ‘We love what is good’. It first opened in 1992, and currently 66 children and 12 staff members.
StorTown has unofficially adopted the crèche as its own, and we are incredibly proud of the progress that has taken place at the crèche since our Braai Day this includes the amazing fridge and food donations given to the crèche earlier this year.
We are heading into winter soon, and if recent weather is anything to go by, it is bound to be a cold one! S’thandokuhle is currently in need of a new stove, blankets, and as an Easter treat, Easter Eggs to treat the little ones that attend the crèche every day. If you would like to get involved and can assist with these donations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our drop-off point will be at StorTown Nguni Way.
Towards the end of April, once the children have returned from their school break, StorTown will head down to the crèche to surprise the children with all the donations we have collected.
StorTown has also collaborated with the Robin Hood Foundation as part of their ‘Love to Read’ campaign. The Robin Hood Foundation have been running their Love to Read book drive to collect 10,000 books for 20 schools in KZN. As part of this initiative, they have been working with Dezzo Roofing, who has employed the skills of a man with hearing disabilities from the Upper Highway community, to build bookshelves for these schools, so that the schools have a place to store their new books! StorTown has donated one of these special shelves to S’thandokuhle crèche.
