Christmas time is a time of giving, and the management and staff of Hirsch’s Silverlakes decided to support the Viva Kids Village recently by collecting colouring books and crayons for the 4 to 5 year olds. The Viva Foundation provides schooling and pre-schooling for children from the impoverished Alaska informal settlement in Mamelodi East.
The saying ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive’ became a reality when seeing the happy smiling faces of the children, who were so excited to receive their gifts. “On behalf of everyone at Viva Village, a big Thank You to Hirch’s Silverlakes for blessing our children with the beautiful colouring in books. Viva is all about partnerships and we value the relationship with Hirsch’s especially!” said Director of the foundation, Meleney Kriel.
