Masvingo – Masvingo Mayor, Collen Maboke yesterday launched the 2020 Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Fund at a brief function held at the Civic Center.
He encouraged local companies to contribute towards the Fund and put a smile on the faces of many disadvantaged people in the city at Christmas including those living in old people and children’s homes.
The launch on the first day saw pledges and cash donations reaching $100 000 and Maboke said that the target is to reach $1 000 000 by Christmas. The Fund will remain open to receive donations until Christmas.
‘’I want to appeal to our local companies to give back to communities that support them. Let’s give a cheer to less privileged people at Christmas. Even the Bible says there is more joy in giving than receiving,” said Maboke.
Large companies traditionally involved in the Cheer Fund are OK, N. Richards, Jadecon Engineering and Construction and others.
“It is our tradition as N. Richards to donate towards the Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Fund, ‘’ said N Richards director Andrew Chekani. https://masvingomirror.com
