After reading a recent article in the Echo about the flooding and electricity problems at Ocean View Care Centre (“Power outage spells misery for preschoolers,” Echo, June 1), Longbeach Mall management reached out to us, and, with the help of a number of mothers from the South Peninsula Moms Facebook page, donated gumboots for each of our children on Friday June 23.

On behalf of Ocean VIew Care Centre, I wish to say a very big thank you to everyone involved.

In the same week, we were also donated tracksuits from Holland Christian High School in Michigan, in America.

So, all in all, it has been a very good week for the children, and we are eternally grateful to the many caring and generous people out there.
