Round Table Impala 157 donated food to Meals on Wheels recently as part of their national Winter Knights initiative.
Speaking on behalf of Round Table Impala 157, Walter Groenewald shared a little of the Winter Knights initiative’s history. “Winter Knights is s home-grown and hands on Round Table project that was first adopted as an association alignment project in 2010. The initial concept originated as an almost social experiment with Tablers having to spend a few hours outdoors in winter wearing light clothing. In so doing, they experienced first-hand the burning cold suffered by so many less fortunate people in their communities.”
“The project has evolved over the years with everything from trolleys being filled at shopping malls, door-to-door collections, corporate donations, creating campaigns with big corporates and finally initiatives that evoke the passion of entire towns and cities to rally behind the Winter Knights.”
