Expand a Sign sponsored 55 children at the Ethelbert Child and Youthcare Centre (ECYC) with new school uniforms for 2013. The company chose to forfeit its 2012 year end company party and not to purchase Christmas gifts for their customers, using the funds to give back during the festive season.
ECYC is situated in Malvern, in KZN and has been caring for children who have been removed from their parents because of sexual and/or physical abuse, neglect, and those orphaned because of HIV/ Aids, since 1907.
Expand a Sign staff held a party for the children at the home on 7th December and presented each child with their own complete uniform. ‘In addition, we sponsored Ethelbert’s with Flying banners and a gazebo, which can be used to create awareness about the home and the wonderful work that they do,’ said Lynsey Hammond, Marketing Manager for Expand a Sign.
