‘Play it forward’ toy drive is a resounding success<p>​As part of our commitment to build a more caring city, The City of Cape Town has concluded yet another successful toy drive campaign.</p><p>During the campaign, themed as ‘Play it forward’, we received in excess of 100 boxes with toys.</p><p>I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have donated new and used toys to all City libraries and at the Cape Town Civic Centre.</p><p>Your generosity will go a long way in ensuring that children in disadvantaged communities have enjoyable childhood experiences.</p><p>When we started the campaign, I undertook to have these toys distributed to the City’s 17 toy libraries in Manenberg, Atlantis, Elsies River, Nyanga and Mfuleni.</p><p>We also committed to allocating a portion of the collected play materials to 33 City-owned Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres across Cape Town.</p><p>Mayoral Committee Member for Area East, Cllr Anda Ntsodo, and I have already distributed the first consignment of toys to the Dora Tamana ECD Centre in Khayelitsha.</p><p>Other area-based mayoral committee members were issued with a quota of toys to distribute to the City-owned ECD Centres during their roadshows.</p><p>More toys will still be issued to the area-based mayoral committee representatives for distribution to centres in their respective constituencies.</p><p>This campaign complements the recently launched 12 ECD resource libraries where books and recreational toys are used to stimulate the development of young children.</p><p>These centres will also be beneficiaries of the toy drive.</p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slides="3" data-slide="1" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/toy%20run2.jpg" alt="" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b></b></a>‘Play it forward’, we received in excess of 100 boxes with toys.</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/toy%20run1.jpg" alt="" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>‘Play it forward’, we received in excess of 100 boxes with toys.</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/toy%20run%203.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>‘Play it forward’, we received in excess of 100 boxes with toys</p> </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b>Aerial view of Cape Town</b></a> - Loren ipsum dolor sit amet loren ipsum dolor sit amet Loren ipsum dolor sit amet.</p></div><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="nav-info">1 of 3</div><div class="slide-next"> <i class="icon arrow-white-next"></i> </div><div class="slide-prev"> <i class="icon arrow-white-prev"></i>​</div></div></div></div>​​</span><p> </p><p>I’m also pleased to announce that City officials are already hard at work planning our next toy drive and the details will be shared soon.</p><p>I would like to urge those who donated toys in the previous toy drive to continue supporting the campaign.
