A very big THANK YOU to all our generous donors and volunteers who made the Christmas Day Lunch for the homeless Lansdowne community such a huge success and heartwarming experience!!
We are overwhelmed by the generosity, kindness, and enthusiasm that made this project possible. We had 31 volunteers assist at the event with transporting goods, setting up, serving food, and gifting the community. Volunteers also cooked 160 meals which we served with cooldrink and treats. With the cash donations, we were able to purchase Yebo Fresh food packs containing non-perishable items as well as hygiene packs. We received a donation of an imported German Christmas tree which added to the festivities and they absolutely loved it!
The community were so grateful and appreciative. At the end of the event, some of their community members came together to thank the volunteers and said “As long as I’ve been staying here, you come every year, I’m so appreciative of what you do for us. We wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. God bless you”
Thank you to everyone who contributed and touched the lives of this community. Our combined efforts brought joy and smiles to their faces and we couldn’t think of a better way to spend Christmas – see below link to the video on our Instagram page or attached if you don’t have an Instagram account.
Wishing you all a bright and beautiful 2023! Stay safe and happy 🙂
