Senior Santa Shoe Box Project

Eileen van der Schyff

Santa Shoe Box Project for the elderly is creating a little Christmas cheer for those in their twilight years, who has very little. The project calls for the Walvis Bay community to get involved towards this special gesture towards the so often forgotten elderly.

This year’s Santa Shoe Box will especially be extra special, after the long periods of isolation our elderly people had to endure in the past year. The boxes, sponsored by Guan’s packaging are supplied. Each box is labelled with a name of an elderly resident, and contains a small suggestion list of inexpensive ideas. If you would like to support, please contact Loamie van Rhyn at or visit The Book Shop at The Walvis Bay Tourism Centre on the corner of 5th Rd and Union Street to pick up your Santa Shoe Box and boxes need to be returned no later than 6 December 2021. Eighty-five boxes have been taken to get filled, leaving the project with 90 that still need to be filled.
