The aim of the Cascades project is to collect food items such as sandwiches and fruit, and also money for the children of Zeekoevlei Primary, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The food items are distributed every Thursday. At the end of each year, the money is used for Christmas hampers which are taken to the children. They are always delighted with the “presents” which are often the only gifts they receive for Christmas.
Classes vie with each other to bring the largest number of contributions and a chocolate cake is awarded at the end of each term to the class that brings the greatest number of contributions.
