52 wonderful volunteers came together on Friday the 5th & Saturday the 6th of May, for yet another successful makeover. This time is was at BRIGHTSTARS – a great home and place of safety in Kraaifontein.
They provide shelter and a caring family environment for children from the poorer local communities whose welfare or safety has been compromised.
Everyone involved worked extra hard to create the amazing transformation in three main areas of the home, namely: The lounge area, outside area and a laundry room.
The Laundry room was divided into a now dual space. A section for the children and staff to enjoy a meal together ( dining room) and a better equipped laundry room that has large, custom built pigeon holes to make storing the kids clothes easier, cleaner and more accessible.
The outside area was cleaned up: bags of clothes, shoes and toys were sorted out. Th general area swept and the playground neatened. We then ended it off by giving the area a new lick of grey paint. Making it the perfect place for the children to enjoy the outdoors.
The Lounge area was then sorted out to ensure maximum space for the children to play, watch tv and enjoy time together.
We are incredibly grateful to all the volunteers who gave up their Friday or Saturday to make a difference!
THANK YOU to everyone!!
