The Hirsch’s Homestore branch in Ballito together with Cloud Nine & Rest Assured recently partnered with Umhlali Prepratory School dedicating the month of March to International Sleep month. Hirsch’sand CNRA put together the initiative to donate mattresses to Summerhill House, and reached out to the children at Umhlali Prep to bring in cuddly toys to the children, many of whom are orphans or come from one parent families.
“We were blown away with the amount of toys brought in by the students at Umhlali and were very excited to be able to take them with us to deliver the toys along with the mattresses from Cloud Nine and Rest Assured. “ Commented Hirsch’s Shane Spencer.
Summerhill House is a hidden refuge for orphans and a community center tucked away on the outskirts of Etete township. Their purpose and goal is to create a lifeline and home for those that want one and a family for those that need one. They have created a place where laughter can be heard.
“What great work they are doing in their community, we were given a tour by their passionate fundraising coordinator Jody Cameron and were welcomed by co-founder Esther “Gogo” Lynn who has committed her life to helping the community and looking after children.” Said Shane
