THANK YOU, COUNTRY FRESH SOUTH AFRICA!
Since we opened Pebbles Klopperpark in July 2020, we have had to adapt and adjust to all the new regulations that the government had implemented in an attempt to keep our nation safe.
It hasn’t been an easy journey at all, but it is generosity received such as by Country Fresh that has carried us forward and helped us survive this trying time.
One of the regulations implemented for Early Childhood Development Centres is that each child has to have their own stationery and toys. Everything needs to be clearly marked and separate, and cleaned at the end of each day. Upon hearing this, we instantly commenced a hunt for containers that we could use to store these items!
We have 60 children at our school, and 31 children at Pebbles Primrose, so we knew that we had to quickly prioritize a hunt for almost 100 containers. We put out a request for containers on our social media platforms, and saw the most phenomenal response by our supporters and sponsors! But it wasn’t nearly enough…
Much to our surprise, Country Fresh actively located our cry for help on social media, and instantly showed interest! They escalated the need, and jumped through all the necessary hoops, urgently trying to help us with this matter.
And so, it was final! We received communication from them and delightfully went to visit them and pick up their generous donation!!
However, when we arrived on site, we instantly noticed that the ‘package’ seemed much bigger than we expected. It was at that moment that we were informed that they hadn’t just offered us 100 containers… they were donating 300 CONTAINERS! Triple the amount that we needed!!!
Words really cannot describe how blessed we feel by this somewhat “simple” donation. We were heard and actively helped by Country Fresh in a very trying and daunting time, and we will forever be grateful to the Country Fresh team!
Thank you so much Country Fresh, we really appreciate your generosity!
P.S: The little ‘attention-to-detail-bug’ inside us all is rejoicing at the fact that all the containers look the same, and the class looks so neat and colourful! Even that is a blessing
