Winter is upon us. This means that most of us will spend our days safely tucked away from the cold under our warm duvets, electric blankets and maybe even camping in front of heaters or the fireplace. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky to have access to something as simple as a blanket – but you can help change this.
You can help make someone’s winter a little warmer by donating blankets or making a monetary donation. The Storehouse Church in Lorraine is currently hosting a winter blanket drive, and all donations acquired will be distributed between the different charities that the church is in connection with.
You can drop off new, or cleaned second-blankets at the church venue, 36 Vitry Avenue in Lorraine, Gqeberha, between 08h30 and 16h30 between Tuesdays and Fridays.
If you would prefer to make a financial contribution, please be sure to reference the donation as ‘Blankets’. The banking details are as follows:
Account Number: 1008101198
As of yet there is not a cut-off date for donations.
No matter how big or small the donation it will be greatly appreciated. In Vincent Van Gogh words “great things are done by a series of small things brought together”. Together we can help make Winter a warmer time for everyone in Gqeberha.
