Outreach Committee brightens up walls at Bumble Bees Crèche

  • YouthKDHLOutreach
King David Linksfield’s Outreach Committee forms a great part of the high school’s activities. The committee provides each learner the opportunity to give back to the Jewish community, also to those less fortunate then themselves and to people in need in general.

The Outreach Committee is divided into two clubs, namely the Interact Club and the Animal Welfare Club. Members of the Interact Club are given the opportunity to either interact with children from Bumble Bee Crèche, Impilo Orphanage, Norwood Primary or Johannesburg Children's Home.

They also visit the elderly every Friday at Sandringham Gardens and undertake weekly visits to Selwyn Segal. Strong bonds and memorable moments are thus created.

The Animal Welfare Club undertakes outings to the SPCA to nurture and comfort the animals there.

Every Friday the Outreach Committee collects money for a different cause and once a month the members collect non-perishable food for Khayelitsha. The committee brings people with the same aspirations together; they all want to work together to help change other people's lives for the better, whether through a visit or a donation, or just by putting a smile on their faces.

There is nothing better in this world than the feeling of making a difference in someone else's life. This the Outreach Committee does.

Recently the school had its “Outreach Week”, in which it created awareness of the importance of education, gratitude, animal welfare and hunger. The Outreach Committee made posters for underprivileged schools and thousands of sandwiches that went to ORT SA, another charity organisation feeding children at less fortunate schools and then last Sunday committee members went to paint the crèche.

The committee boasts more than 150 members and is led by Alex Cohen; Cassidy Haefner; Angie Sevel; and Carly Soicher.
