Mayor Collen Maboke
Various stakeholders from around Masvingo city have added a Christmas cheer to the underprivileged people in society by contributing $7 410 towards the mayor’s Christmas cheer fund.
A total of $5 040 cash was raised at the cheer fund reception while pledges of $2 370 were made supported by a 50kg of rice.
Masvingo city mayor Collen Maboke said the cheer fund was still open for more donations and called on the business community as well as other stakeholders to come and contribute something towards the fund.
“We are still open for more donations. These donations will go a long way in adding a smile to the faces of the underprivileged people in our society.
“During the festive season, the society tends to forget about these groups of people and that is why the mayor’s Christmas cheer fund was launched. It was launched with those special groups in mind.
“The proceeds we raised will be shared amongst the less privileged,” said Maboke.
