The Maritzburg College Foundation has, for a while, coordinated a successful Care Package programme aimed at adding that special extra “something” to the College experience for our Boarders who are far from home. Our hope is that it will make their College experience a bit more special!
Old Boys, parents and supporters have, over the years, supported our Care Package programme, as we match them with a College Boarder in need. The quarterly care packages are coordinated and delivered at the start of each term and are put together by the Foundation and paid for by the benefactor.
Items provided in the care pack (to the value of R850) include personal hygiene items like showergel, toothpastes and deodorants as well as much enjoyed sweets, biscuits, and juice. Terms can seem long, especially for boys who spend most of their weekends in the BE, so having extra necessary items as well as treats to share with your #RedBlackWhite brothers make any homesick College Boarder feel heaps better. A bit of Home away from Home!
If you would like to get involved in this extremely worthy initiative or if you would like more information, please contact Jenny Baptista on Baptistaj@mcollege.co.za or alternatively 033-342 9376.
Some words from our boys:
“Thank you for the blessing you have given may you have a blessed year and God bless you”
“Thank you so much for the tuck I got, I really appreciate it. It means a lot to me.”
“Thanks for getting the box I really appreciated it and I needed thank you”
“I am so grateful for your kindness and all that you do for me”
