Northlink College Wingfield Campus Gives Back

Wingfield Campus staff giving handing out shoe-boxes to the elderly

In 2012 Northlink College launched a Northlink – Cares Project aimed at reaching out to the community by giving back. Wingfield campus did just that by visiting the Martina old age home in Parow Valley.
On the day Wingfield presented the elders with basic toiletry necessities and a pleasant meal. The toiletry gifts amounted to 154 packages in total, which comprised of a toothbrush, toothpaste, facecloth, roll-on, soap, shampoo, face cream, powder and a shaver for the men. Everyone gathered in the dining hall where some of the elders were seen bursting into tears of joy when the packages were handed over to them.
As a tertiary institution we are not just business-orientated, but client-orientated too. The College is well acquainted by the fact that in order to operate, the support of the community is needed and should be seen as an indispensable factor at all times by all educational institutions. This is why it is imperative for us to give back to our communities.
A special thanks was given to Seeff Goodwood and Marine Crew Services SA for their contribution towards the Northlink – Cares project. It just shows how much of a difference we can make if we stand together in focusing on those in need.
Northlink College will continue to give back to the community and educate them on the opportunities that are available out there as an education watch – dog of society.
