...Christmas Cheer for the Needy …
Today is the 1st November, 2016 which means that in Stanford, South Africa, it is time to launch the 2016 Bags of Love Campaign. We appeal for assistance in feeding the desperately under-privileged community of our Village. These are the very poor and needy folk, who won’t have even a basic meal to look forward to on Christmas Day. They are the poorest of the poor - children, the sick and the elderly – who would normally rely on the 5 soup kitchens in Stanford for basic nutrition.
What makes the Bags of Love so vital at this time of the year? The volunteers who operate the soup kitchens take a two-week break over Christmas and New Year which simple means there is no food available to the people who normally make use of them. The aim of the campaign is not only to feed the needy at this critical time but also to bring a small measure of cheer into their otherwise dismal lives.
The Rotary Club of Stanford will once again drive the Bags of Love campaign and coordinator Lana Coates will ensure that bags are distributed to those families who are in genuine need in Stanford.
