During our Book Drive indicative this year the community helped us to collect new and gently used books suitable for all ages in aid of a Library/Recourse Centre for SOS Children’s Village PE – A loving home for Every child – Schauderville and the fairly empty shelves at ACVV Huis Genot – Home for older persons – Algoa Park, Port Elizabeth. The donations were overwhelming to give the gift of reading.
Hours were spent to collect books everywhere, sort, lable and to give some TLC. PE Pearls Ladies Circle No. 19 left a little sparkle in the lives of the elderly at ACVV Huis Genot on Sunday, 28th October, when we went to deliver the suitable books for their library together with some puzzles and wool for the creative elderly. We had a very special time handing out treats to each person as well and ended the morning off with a treat for ourselves at Floradale Nurseries.
We are still in the process of establishing the Library/Recourse Centre for SOS Children’s Village PE and look forward to revealing all in the near future. We’ll keep you posted.
