2017 PLEDGE IS NOW CLOSED

Balfour Park Shopping Centre is thrilled to join Sam Gouws in the Shoe Box initiative.

Have you ever stopped for a moment and thought about the elderly who don’t have any family to share Christmas with?

Together, our aim is to collect and distribute as many gifts as we can to the elderly at Christmas time.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

YOU could make a difference for just one elderly lady/gent this year.

YOU could bring a little hope & joy to just one person this year.

All you need to do is pledge one shoe box of needed items.

We have all heard of the SANTA SHOE BOX PROJECT that runs every year, aimed at specifically less fortunate children. This year we want to encourage you to do something different.

 

PLEDGE A SHOE BOX FOR ONE ELDERLY EAST LONDON CITIZEN and put the joy and hope back into Christmas this year.

The shoe boxes pledged will be distributed to the elderly citizens, identified in need, who reside in old age homes situated in East London.

HOW TO PLEDGE:

1. Send a confirmation email/SMS/Whatsapp to Sam Gouws (shoeboxpledge@gmail.com or 079 697 8506) with your full name, contact details and pledge (this is to help us allocate your shoe box pledge accordingly)

2. Assemble and pack your box (Scroll down to see tips on what to pack and assembling your box)

3. Drop off your box at Brands Bedroom Centre, Balfour Road, Balfour Park Shopping Centre, Vincent no later than 30th November 2017.

TIPS FOR ASSEMBLING YOUR SHOE BOX:

Recycle an old shoe box to put your contents in. Alternatively any box will  be appreciated.

Decorate the box with Christmas paper and a bow, or let your little one draw a special picture for that special someone.

WHAT TO PACK:

Each person that pledges will personally receive a thank you notice from us informing them of the elderly citizen that received their Shoe Box Pledge this year.
