Jars of Hope from the HSFA

Jars of Hope from the HSFA

The Helderberg Society For the Aged’s residents from Assisted Living and some Independent Units all donated ingredients and their time to pack JARS OF HOPE as a Mandela Day initiative.  The HSFA, (although a ‘Not-for-Profit-Organisation’ itself), has a team of dynamic residents and staff who like to give back to their communities and charities.  Hundreds of “Jars of Hope” were provided to charities supported by Together Against Covid, Masincedane, as well as to HSFA’s own Garden Village Senior Service Centre.  Note all HSFA activities are done within the limits of safe Covid protocols

Caring for Sharing 2020

Caring for Sharing 2020

This group of ladies and gentleman generously contribute a total of R1000 every month towards meal tickets for the HSFA Independent Living residents that reside in subsidised units, and thus have received the HSFA ‘Caring through Sharing’ Award for 2020! Veronica Webb who coordinated this kind effort from the group of donors, said: “It is not always about the money as some of our little group help out when we have a soup lunch or afternoon tea for Camelot or La Rochelle residents”. Due to Covid-19 constraints, Veronica and her friends were not able to receive the award at the AGM, however, a lovely tea and cake morning was organised at the Vonke Coffee Shop to hand over the award. Thank you again Veronica and friends.

The gift of giving keeps residents and staff of the HSFA upbeat!

The gift of giving keeps residents and staff of the HSFA upbeat! Thank you Mrs Dally from Robari Lodge (HSFA Assisted Living Unit) for knitting for the Macassar elderly community. Beanies, scarves and socks were donated to beat the winter chills.  Also, Sr Tina Labuschagne (one of the HSFA nurses in Nightingale) is one of the many staff who volunteered to live in the HSFA during the Covid-19 lockdown. Several Vonke House residents saw her knitting and asked if they could help. She provided them with wool and they knitted leg warmers and hand mitts for other thankful residents in her unit. Thank you Sister Labuschagne for going the extra mile to make our residents comfortable, and thank you too all the supportive residents who lent a helping hand!
