Santa Shoe Box Project 2015
Santa’s helpers have done it again! As part of a national charity drive, staff at UKZN’s Pietermaritzburg campus and some of their friends have made online pledges to the Santa Shoe Box initiative to fill shoe boxes for children on the project’s Christmas list.
The project relies on the passion and generosity of willing volunteers and donations to ensure the delivery of thousands of gifts to lesser-privileged children in South Africa.
The contents of the boxes include items such as stationery, toiletries, toys, clothing and sweets.
‘This year the Santa Shoe Box may reach its goal of more than a 110 000 pledges and we are all thrilled to be a part of it,’ said UKZN’s Tammy Frankland. ‘Our involvement in the project has grown from four people in 2013 to 17 this year! We are confident that our team of Santa’s helpers will grow even larger in the future – ensuring the contribution of more shoe boxes from UKZN.’
