School shows plenty of love in cloth­ing drive

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram Anglican Gram­mar School’s cloth­ing drive in sup­port of Angli­care has been a huge suc­cess.

Through­out Au­gust the school com­mu­nity has been en­cour­aged to do­nate preloved cloth­ing that will be dis­trib­uted to those in need by Angli­care.

The school’s stu­dent lead­ers set a goal of col­lect­ing 1000 items of cloth­ing and, thanks to the gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity, this goal was eas­ily ex­ceeded.

On Fri­day the stu­dents proudly dis­played the many items that will be do­nated to Angli­care.

Angli­care Vic­to­ria’s Wan­garatta com­mu­nity devel­op­ment worker Tanya Grant ac­cepted the do­na­tion on be­half of Angli­care.

‘‘We are ex­cited to be in­volved with this im­pres­sive youth ini­tia­tive from the stu­dents of Co­bram Anglican Gram­mar School,’’ Ms Grant said.

‘‘The cloth­ing do­na­tion is ex­tremely gen­er­ous and will make a big dif­fer­ence with as­sist­ing so many dis­ad­van­taged mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.’’

Lots of drive: Stu­dents from Co­bram Anglican Gram­mar School with some of the do­nated cloth­ing.
