This year St Martin's is again partnering with St Vincent de Paul, Carina to run a soup appeal for local families in need. The appeal will run in Weeks 9 and 10 with the launch on Monday 17th June at our whole school assembly. Families are asked to donate one item to the appeal and this can include soup, along with other non-perishable items. E.g. tinned meals, pasta, pasta sauce, cereal, tinned tuna, baked beans and spaghetti, 2-minute noodles etc.Our local SVDP Carina distributes the donations with all food going directly to families in need in the local area. At present the demand for food assistance continues to grow with many families assisted by SVDP Carina not sending children to school because of a lack of food.
Each student will bring home a St Vincent de Paul enviro bag to transport donations in. If you are able to add an extra item to your grocery list this weekend, it would be truly appreciated. We thank you for participating in the appeal as every donation makes a difference to local families in need!
