RAG (Reach out and Give) is one of the annual activities that all Sonoppers look forward to.
Early in the year, the 2nd year participants take part in a short-term project where they build physical structures to needy organizations to promote the organizations. In 2020, Sonop built 28 double-seat school benches for Danville Primary School and assisted at the SPCA Watloo branch with raising awareness for adopting pets and cleaning facilities.
RAG, however, does not just involve a short-term project early in the year. Blood donation is an important activity that we do throughout the year. RAG also contributes to the community around Sonop. During the Covid-19 crisis, Sonop provided gloves, hand sanitizers, coffee and rusks to all security personnel in the community. Rag also regularly helps out at soup kitchens.
Rag is important to us here at Sonop Christian Home because we can not only show our gratitude by helping other people but we also firmly believe in The Fruit of the Spirit. It is a term used by the Apostle Paul to summarize nine visible characteristics of a true Christian life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control (Galatians 5:22).
