Children across KwaZulu-Natal are helping bring joy to our province’s less fortunate children by getting involved with one of KZN’s biggest CSI initiatives: East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game.
From the Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School and Wartburg Kirchdorf School in the Midlands to Glenwood High School and Happy Faces Educare in Glenwood, Durban to Kamalinee Primary School in Isipingo and Atholton Primary School in Umhlanga, pupils are actively involved in collecting new toys for thousands of little ones who are in government hospitals, crèches, orphanages and children’s homes. Children have also been making their way to East Coast Radio’s offices in Umhlanga to donate their new toys and to meet their favourite presenters.
With a Toy Story Schools Trophy up for grabs, the race to collect the most number of new toys is well underway! Last year, Deccan Road Primary in Raisethorpe, in Pietermaritzburg celebrated a hatrick win, earning the trophy for the third year in a row!
If your school would like to get involved, please email Toystory@ecr.co.za to request a Toy Story collection box, and arrangements will be made to deliver the box to your school. We will also collect the new toys once the box is full. Schools have until 4 December 2015 to collect new toys.
Details on how to make cash donations to East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game area available on www.ecr.co.za Every cent is used to buy food parcels for child-headed households in KZN to help make sure the children have sufficient food over the long end-of-year school holidays. Each food parcel costs R350 and can feed a family of four people for six weeks.
East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game wraps up on 15 December 2015.
