Tin with a Treasure Project

For the past two and a half years, Salem Danville - a non-profit organization  nr: 080-720 – has been touching people’s lives in the West of Pretoria. We started with 6 people under an open roof and we have grown to a hundred adults, 70 children and 30 teenagers.

Currently we are fellowshipping in an old pub that we have renovated into a church, in one of the poorest areas in Danville.

Every Christmas we aim to give every family in our congregation a bag full of food to also make the festive time a special occasion.

This year we also want to combine it with a message and want to give more privileged children the opportunity to feel they do something for the unprivileged people of Danville.

We want to ask you as an individual, school or Sunday school to get involved by asking each child to donate a can of food. The message part is where each child pastes his own picture or message over the tin. His name and the name of the school or church are also written on the paper. For practical reasons we also ask that you would write down what is inside the can, so that one family would not only get baked beans J.
Our aim is to collect a thousand tins with treasures!

These tins will be handed over one Sunday in December to the precious people of our congregation! All churches and schools that get involved can even send a representative on that day. Otherwise photo’s of this day will be available!

Thank you very much that you consider getting involved with this project. We cannot do this alone, and people like you make it possible to show God’s hand to these people!

May you and your family be richly blessed!
