Ellerslie Sunrise club members have focused on an area of child poverty they could address. The club have donated $2600 worth of pyjamas to the Middlemore Foundation for their Jammies in June drive to give 2 - 14 year old South Auckland children their own pyjamas. That cash has purchased over 300 sets of new flannelette pyjamas. Club members have also donated hundreds of dollars worth of brand new slippers to go with them.
Every child going into Middlemore's Kids First is given a new set of pyjamas. A new set is also given to every sibling child.These will make the winter of more than 300 children a lot more healthy and comfortable; and will assist in keeping them out of hospital.
Let's see what we can do this coming June.
