Ackermans recently gave the kids of Dalubuhle Primary School in Franschhoek a visit to donate warm clothing.
Dalubuhle Primary School is a small rural school in great need of assistance and was selected by the Rupert Education Foundation as a school needing support. When Ackermans heard about this initiative and evaluated the needs of the school, they concluded the school deserved additional support.
To this end, Ackermans donated 92 grey school jerseys to the grade R students to help ward off the winter chill.
"It gives us great delight to help children in need and as part of our CSI initiative we deemed this a most worthy cause. Our focus is on early childhood development and thus this type of community upliftment is a wonderful fit. It was an honour and privilege to give back to the community and the smiles on their little faces were well worth it,'' says Feisal Daniels, Planning Manager of Ackermans.
Daniels, along with Buying Manager Hillary du Toit, were tasked with the handing over of parcels, with a delighted Nomhle Lucy Mbenenge, the Principal of Dalubuhle Primary, watching over the proceedings. Buddy Bear was also part of the event to keep the little ones thoroughly entertained.
