Com­mu­nity springs into ac­tion to help the needy

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

IN JUST six weeks, the South Perth Youth Net­work col­lected more than 20 boxes of do­na­tions as part of its Spring Clean Out.

The clean-out was an ini­tia­tive of SPYN to give un­wanted items to Southcare’s op shop.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said this was the first year SPYN had done some­thing like this.

“It has been a great suc­cess and in just six weeks they col­lected over 20 boxes of do­na­tions, with more still com­ing in,” she said.

“This ini­tia­tive by SYPN re­flects how em­pow­er­ing young peo­ple in our com­mu­nity can reach out to those who truly have needs beyond those some can re­late to and at times can slip through the cracks.”
