Robor Cares and Gives back’ ends 2012 on a high

The Santa Shoebox project was started in Cape Town in 2006 by Dee Boeher. From its birth it has grown in leaps and bounds, this year alone, more than 100 000 children throughout South Africa and Namibia received boxes, these all made by individuals and companies alike.
This year the Robor team joined the countrywide effort, and made up shoeboxes for 120 under privileged children from Japie Greyling Primary School in Randvaal, Gauteng.
 
The school was named after the school boy hero Japie Greyling, who bravely opposed the Brittish, during the Second Boer War. It then also made headlines in 1970 when 23 of their learners tragically died in the Henley-on-Klip bus accident.
 
“More than 120 of Japie Greylings learners are currently on the schools feeding scheme. I know that the school’s staff does its utmost to teach, feed and help the learners thus, when the head master requested that I continue the shoebox project for the kids again, I immediately knew the Robor employees would jump at the opportunity” said Melody Barber.
 
“Thank you to each and every person for packing such thoughtful and creative items, as well as decorating and making such stunning boxes! The children were delighted at the party and sincerely appreciate your efforts for making their festive season special”.
