‘Delivering Happiness to Diepsloot’ is a much anticipated annual Steyn City CSI project aimed at improving lives by ensuring that Primary School Learners receive an early Christmas gift. Over 9000 Primary School learners from seven different schools within the Diepsloot community received a backpack with goodies and stationery sponsored by Croxley.
The day started at the Steyn City’s Equestria Center where all volunteers and sponsors gathered in preparation of delivering happiness. A convoy of trucks and vans filled with the “Happiness Crew” drove to Diepsloot, arriving to excited Learners who were singing songs of praise and thankfulness as they lined up to get they’re backpacks. Croxley representatives Sarah Sebetola (PR Co-ordinator) and Mojaki Finger (Commercial Director) were among the volunteers. Steyn City ambassador and Metro FM radio personality, Tbo-Touch, , Olympian Gold Medallist Roland Schoeman and 21 Icon and social entrepreneur Thato Kgatlhanye were among the celebrities that helped to hand out the backpacks.
The Learners were very excited to receive the backpacks while posing with the celebrities. Just when they though the give-aways were finished, Father Christmas with the help of the Happiness Crew handed out packets of candy adding to the cheer and excitement.
Marketing Manager Tammy Menton expressed gratitude to all sponsors and volunteers involved, explaining that all contributions are going to help shape the future of the Learners who are so hungry to succeed and will do just that through continued support from all involved.
