Homeless Shoebox Appeal

18th November 2017

On Friday 1st December, the students from the Social Justice Advocacy Group will be providing a cooked meal for 40 homeless people at a location in the city centre.

This is a huge undertaking by the students but an action which the boys feel very strongly about achieving.

As part of this action, we would like to prepare a shoebox gift to give to each of the homeless individuals for whom we will be cooking the meal.

For this, we ask our school community to help us with a few things and help with donations of one of the items below:

1. A shoebox
2. Roll on deodorant
3. Warm gloves
4. A warm hat
5. Warm socks
6. A warm scarf
7. A toothbrush
8 Toothpaste
9. Bar of chocolate
10. Packet of biscuits

If you can purchase one of those items and leave it in the school office it would be much appreciated. Our Social Justice Group will compile the boxes and wrap them nicely for presentation to those in need at the hot lunch on the 1st December.

It is hoped to have an evening in the Kennedy Centre where contributions can be purchased and dropped off and more details will be posted here when available.

Many thanks in advance for your contribution to helping the homeless in our society.
