As we head into the festive season, the Matt’s Foundation Christmas Drive commences. This is a special initiative to collect gifts and presents for destitute members of the Vaal community, children in particular. Matt’s Foundation relies on the support of the community to help bring holiday cheer to orphans and disadvantaged children in Vaal through its Christmas Gift Drive. “Our Christmas Drive has been running for the past 5 years and every year with the help of caring Vaal residents, we are able to surprise underprivileged children with a little Christmas cheer,” said the Matt’s Foundation Board.
The Matt’s Foundation Christmas Drive is a way to celebrate the true meaning of the festive season. As we gather with our families and celebrate the love that surrounds us through giving gifts, lets spare a thought for those who are less fortunate. The gift of giving is a wonderful experience because when you give to a person who is disadvantaged by life; it also brightens up your day.
The community can get involved by donating toys, presents, stationery, food, clothing as well as volunteering their time in aid of the Christmas Drive. Matt’s Foundation wants to collect enough presents for the kids as well as stationery items to kick-start the children’s school needs for 2015.
