Haven Night Shelter Mandela Day Clothing Collection Drive

12 July 2016

“There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others, without expecting anything in return.” ~ Nelson Mandela

Creative Consulting & Development Works are dedicating the month of July to giving back in honour of our late Nelson Mandela and to celebrate his birthday, we are getting behind a local shelter in Woodstock called Haven Night Shelter at Moira Henderson House, 107 Chapel Street, Woodstock.

We will be making soup and sandwiches on Monday the 18th of July as our 67-minutes contribution on his 98th birthday and distributing to those in need. In addition to this, we are also running a clothing drive for donation to help them out. The shelter has on average 50 people staying at any one time and 66 people at capacity – all of whom are in much need of some clothing items – especially now with winter in full swing.

We would like to reach out to you, as part of our amazing network, to assist us by donating any old clothing items you may be able to give. You can drop your items off at our offices in Woodstock, or, if not too far, give us a call and we can come and collect and distribute on your behalf. If you are not able to donate any clothing, but would like to contribute in other ways, or know of someone we can speak to in order to meet a particular need, please get in touch, as every bit goes a long way.

We have also asked Haven Night Shelter for their wishlist of items they are in need of. Here is the list they have shared:

  • Food donations (especially dry goods and tinned foods)
  • Curtains for their rooms (15 sets)
  • Curtain rails
  • Water saving shower heads (6)
  • Shower curtains
  • Extractor fans for bathrooms (2)
  • Reading Material for their bookshelf (books). They accommodate families, so children’s books would also be welcome.
  • Paint: They would like to start painting the guests rooms in various bright colours, so as to lighten up the place and promote positivity.

 

We will be delivering all donations of clothes and other items, soup and sandwiches from 2pm on Monday the 18th of July 2016.

Feel free to mail us at Fatima@developmentworks.com or call on 021 448 2058 if you would like to donate or provide assistance with the drive.

We look forward to you joining us in our quest to give back this month. Every little bit counts…

Join us in this drive!
