MANDURAH Baptist College Year 7 students held a School Food Appeal, and collected non-perishable food items for those in need.

A Free Dress Day with an Op Shop theme was also held to raise money for the cause.

Each student was allowed to dress up if they donated at least one non perishable item.

Senior school spokeswoman Lisa van Til said winter storms and cold nights were a harsh reminder that many people in our community are in desperate need of help.

“With winter on the way we are preparing for one of our busiest times of the year.

“Demand for food relief remains high with over 51,000 Western Australians seeking help each month – around 16,000 are children.”
