Once again WearCheck employees have reached deep into their own pockets to assist those in need. Inspired by East Coast Radio’s Winter Warmth campaign, WearCheck staff clubbed together and raised enough money to buy blankets for 200 needy people, who would otherwise have gone cold this winter.
And, thanks to the generosity of the WearCheck team, the orphans at St Vincent Children’s Home in Mariannhill were treated to a day of chocolatey Easter delights contributed by staff. Money was collected via a raffle, with WearCheck matching the money raised.
Francis Berner of WearCheck marketing explains that St Vincent’s is WearCheck’s charity of choice as it is located near their Westmead offices. ‘We believe it is important to reach out a neighbourly helping hand to our local community, to try and uplift those in need, especially the children.’
For both the blanket donation and Easter egg projects, all monies raised by employees were matched Rand for Rand by WearCheck, effectively doubling the efforts of the staff to reach out and help those in need.
