The St Stephen’s School Year 10 students delivered the packages to UnitingCare West’s homelessness services last month

Principal Tony George thanked the students for their work to collect and package the donations.

‘With such a large number of people seeking assistance from homeless shelters, it was a great opportunity for our students to get involved and help those much less fortunate than ourselves,’ he said.

Students also made up packages for young parents and families who are homeless.

Donations to the winter appeal can be made online at www.unitingcarewest.org.au/donate or on 1300 663 298.
