The Homeless shoebox appeal has been going well but we do need some more items to be brought in before Thursday of this week.
Tomorrow evening, members of our Social Justice Advocacy Group will be present outside the entrance to Sainsbury's in the Kennedy Centre from 6.30pm unitl 9.30pm to collect items needed and to talk to the public about our drive.
At 12.30pm on Friday, the boys will serve a hot Turkey and Ham dinner to 40 homeless men from a number of hostels at a location in Belfast City Centre. It is at this event that the boys will present each homeless person with the gift of a wrapped shoebox with some essentials and treats to help them over the coming days and weeks.
This is a whole school community initiative and the generosity of our students and their families has been great.
We are also looking for a donation of 10 apple tarts and 10 cartons of custard for dessert for the meal.
We would ask that the following items can be dropped off at the school or indeed at our table in the Kennedy Centre tomorrow night.
Roll-on deodorant (no aerosols)
Bar of chocolate
Packet of biscuits
Many thanks to all who have contributed.
