Community Projects

67 MINUTES FOR MADIBA – 2015

The Stats Properties team, together with some family members and friends, reached out to the poorest of the poor when they delivered home-made soup, bread and bananas to some of those who sleep on the pavements or under the trees in the Moot and Eastern suburbs of Pretoria. Seeing the gratitude on the faces of these people, some of whom were already rolled up in their coverings, was so humbling and we came away grateful to make a difference for one night, in their lives.

 

 

BUCKETS OF BLESSINGS - 2014

Stats Properties again reached out to the community on 18 and 19 December 2014 by surprising 80 homeless people each with a Bucket of Blessings. The buckets contained some toiletries (guest towel, a bar of soap, a toilet roll, a jar of vaseline & a toothbrush with a tube of toothpaste), fruit (bananas and oranges), utensils (Aluminium mug and desert spoon) and groceries (tea, coffee, sugar, Cremora, biscuits, a loaf of bread and a packet of mealie meal). The buckets were distributed in the Moot area and around Lynnwood Glen & Garsfontein. The joy on the faces of the recipients was humbling as well as uplifting, especially when the young children showed their appreciation with their “high fives”! At one place, we were not sure whether “the package” on the pavement was a person or recycling. The person could barely believe his eyes when he saw the bread and the bucket.

In addition, we received a donation of several specially packed buckets for which we have selected individual recipients with whom we have had some contact during the year and whom we know are in a desperate financial situation.

The Stats Properties team wish to thank all those who contributed to the success of the project whether by giving a donation, supplying goods at excellent prices or assisting with the packing and distribution of the buckets.

 

 

BUCKETS OF BLESSINGS - 2013

Stats Properties again reached out to the community during December 2013 by surprising 70 homeless people each with a Bucket of Blessings. The buckets contained some toiletries (face cloth, guest towel, 2 bars of soap, a toilet roll, a jar of vaseline & a toothbrush with a tube of toothpaste), fruit (bananas and oranges), utensils (Aluminium mug and desert spoon) and groceries (tea, coffee, sugar, Cremora, biscuits, a loaf of bread, a dehydrated food pack which would supply a meal for 6 people, a packet of salt, a box of matches and a packet of mealie meal. The buckets were distributed in the Moot area and around Lynnwood Glen & Garsfontein. The joy on the faces of the recipients was humbling as well as uplifting. The Stats Properties team wish to thank all those who contributed to the success of the project whether by giving a donation, supplying goods at excellent prices or assisting with the packing and distribution of the buckets.

 

 

 

 

67 MINUTES FOR MADIBA - 2013

The Stats Properties team and families once again reached out to the poorest of the poor when we delivered home-made soup, half a loaf of bread and some oranges to those who are homeless. As is always the case, there were many more takers than to whom we could supply. However the privilege for us was that we knew that at least those to whom we had given, went to sleep after enjoying a filling and tasty meal.

 

 

 

COMMUNITY PROJECT

Stats Properties made a decision to forego a Christmas lunch and rather to give that money and time to a Community Project.  In 2010 we assisted the Kameeldrift Early Learning centre by:

  • Replacing broken window panes after learning how to do this;
  • Providing colourful cubby holes for the little ones’ sachels;
  • Planting poles for a roof support so that the children could enjoy their lunch
  • nder shade or protected from the rain;
  • Putting up supports for shade cloth in the sand pit;
  • Providing a meal which was enjoyed by all;
  • Supplying a printer & copier for the principal.

 

We visited the centre again recently to take a badly needed printer cartridge.  What a wonderful surprise to see how the centre has gone from strength to strength – a roof has been added, a garden has been started and there are plans to extend it and the children were thrilled with the new printer cartridge!
