SHARE IN THE JOY OF GIVING – WORLD NET LOGISTICS EMPLOYEES DONATE SANTA SHOEBOXES
World Net Logistics has supported the Santa Shoebox Project for many years.
With the slogan – share in the joy of giving – the initiative collects and distributes gift boxes for underprivileged children throughout South Africa and Namibia. Unlike other donations, you know the gender, age and name of the child you are giving to.
Starting with 180 boxes in 2006, the Santa Shoebox Project has provided until now a total of 762 594 children with gifts over the festive season.
Besides toys and sweets for the children, World Net Logistics staff also packed essential cleaning products like soap and tooth brushes as well as stationary and other educational material.
“The Santa Shoebox initiative has gained more and more support over the years from employees and management, with some staff donating a number of shoeboxes” mentioned Janine Clark, HR Manager of World Net Logistics.
A total of 63 boxes were donated by World Net Logistics staff members and handed over to the organisers on Friday, 5 October 2018, in order for them to be on time for the festive season.
“The Santa Shoebox Project wants to deliver one million boxes by next year and we are excited to support and be a part of this initiative” commented Janine.
