MACS Shipping Lines’ recent Xmas Charity drive, “For the children”, collected more than N$25,000 worth of dry food stuff, fresh produce and clothing. Special donation boxes, donated by Guans Packaging and Mpact, were placed at various Manica Group Namibia divisions and Namsov to allow staff members to contribute in some small way to the charity drive.
Rozelle Stumpfe (MACS) said they were overwhelmed with the generous support shown by staff members. The Pandula Trust also donated N$10,000 worth of dry food as well as fruit and vegetables. The two ‘bakkie’-loads of food and clothing were donated to the Kids Haven centre for neglected and orphaned children and to the Helping Hands charity group’s soup kitchen and elderly support programmes in Walvis Bay.
“We are overjoyed and grateful for the support from our colleagues. I’d like to say thank you to Pandula Trust, the Manica group staff and Namsov for donating the food and clothing. Even Fruit & Veg gave us a further 10% discount on the fresh produce. There is no other feeling more rewarding than that of helping someone in need. Your donations have truly touched many hearts!” Rozelle said.
Well done MACS!
