To kick off our 3rd Annual Winter Warmer Blanket Drive we invite our clients, subscribers and readers to participate in our initiative to collect blankets to donate to the Operation Anti-freeze Organisation in Johannesburg. This initiative began in 2012 as an internal project, successfully raising and donating a combined total of 380 blankets. This year, IMMIX will be contributing a minimum of 200 blankets. We would like for you to get involved and expand on this contribution.
Operation Anti-Freeze commenced in October 2000 to provide food, clothing and blanket schemes on a monthly basis to the Ekurhuleni Districts of Benoni, Brakpan, Boksburg, Germiston, Kempton Park, Nigel, Springs, Bedfordview and Edenvale. They host a Soup Kitchen on the first Wednesday of every month where they provide homeless individuals and orphans with a warm plate of food and a small grocery bag with basic necessities.
Contributing to the initiative will not only give you the opportunity to support the less fortunate during the cold winter months, but also earn your company a recognition letter directly from the Operation Anti-Freeze Organisation with full acknowledgment and gratitude on the IMMIX website to which you can proudly promote to your clients. We further invite you to join us at the Operation Anti-Freeze premises to assist in handing out the blankets and helping them in their Soup Kitchen. Date and details to follow soon.
Donations start immediately and will run until Friday 30 May 2014.
There are two options for getting involved:
- Donate money and IMMIX will purchase blankets on your behalf (R100 per blanket)
- Purchase new and second-hand blankets and dropping it off at the IMMIX office in Sunninghill
