Stu­dents pro­vide project help

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.”
