A New Year Eve party for the hungry, homeless and the elderly has raised more than $10m for a charity that works with them.
The $10,000 donation was made to the Salvation Army’s Red Harvest, a program that uses food banks to feed and clothe the needy in rural areas.
Red Harvest is a program of the Salvation’s Global Food Initiative, which works with local charities to provide food, clothing and other essentials to people in need.
Many of those who have benefitted from Red Harvest in recent years have been in poverty, with people struggling to pay their bills or struggling to get by on less than $US1 a day.
As a result, some of them have lost the support they need.
The charity’s president, Richard Brown, said the program was intended to help these people.
“We need to provide them with food, shelter, and the essentials they need to get through the holiday season,” Mr Brown said.
This program will be used in a number of countries in the world and will be a big boost to the Red Harvest program.
“We’re very pleased that we have been able to provide a small amount of money to help with the food and clothing crisis that we’ve seen in some of the most impoverished countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas,” Mr Brooks said.
Red Harvest provides a variety of services to the poorest of the poor.
It works with some of South Africa’s biggest food banks and charities, including the Salvation army, to provide meals, clean clothes and other items to those who need them most.
Last year, Red Harvest distributed more than 7,500 meals and clothes to more than 8,000 people.
Red harvest has also partnered with a number other charities, such as the Salvationarmy, the Red Cross and the Salvation House of Hope.
“I think the people that have been affected most are those who are homeless and those who lack the means to buy food,” Mr Williams said.
“These are the people who have lost their homes and they don’t have the money to buy the things they need.”
Red harvest was recently recognised as one of the best charities in the country, the charity’s CEO Richard Brown said, with some local businesses even donating their Christmas Eve menus to the charity.
“The people that are in the red are the ones who have got food, are hungry and don’t get to eat the holidays,” Mr Wilson said.
The charity’s annual fundraising event has also helped raise money for other charities.
In the past few years, the SalvationArmy has given away more than 4,000 gift cards for the party.
“A lot of people have come up to us and said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to do anything, I want to be able to support the Red and the Red Army’,” Mr Brown joked.
