The Hayfields Hindu Organisation recently embarked on their annual Diwali Charity Drive and distributed 50 Diwali hampers to needy families in the Northdale and Copesville areas on Sunday, November 4.
Each hamper contained forty items and weighed approximately 60kg. Each included groceries, vegetables, and exclusive Diwali items, as well as a hot meal. In addition to these grocery hampers, hot meals were distributed to needy families in the vicinity.
The cost of these hampers totalled just over R50 000.
The organisation received generous donations from many individuals in cash and kind. They would also like to thank their corporate sponsors for their generosity, namely, Tilly’s Transport CC, Pick ‘n Pay, Dada’s Spices, Clover, GT Logistics, Cassa-Mia Biscuits, Top Rotis, DairyPack, Kara Nichas, Mi-ka Fruit Newcastle and Magic Fireworks. The generosity in this tough economic environment from all the sponsors ensured many smiles and tears of joy and appreciation.
