Students provide project help
Wimmera organisations providing support for homeless and disadvantaged people have used ‘backpacks’ to help their clients thanks to the efforts of Wimmera students.
Shania Cleaver and Tindara Lauricella joined forces to collect items for the backpacks as part of a Horsham College Satellite Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning project.
The pair worked on the Help the Homeless project between February 15 and March 2, collecting donations for 12 backpacks after a socialmedia call-out for donations.
“Tindara came up with the idea and we took on the project to help people who were in need of some help and couldn’t afford to buy anything,” Shania said.
“We then donated the items through the Christian Emergency Food Centre in Horsham, Uniting Wimmera and Headspace. We thank everyone for their donations.”
