Pupils join forces for foodbank

St Vincent de Paul Society pastoral co-ordinator Sarah Strang  was surrounded by donations to the society’s foodbank from pupils at eight Dunedin Catholic schools.

She was overwhelmed by the pupils’ generosity when she collected the donations at Kavanagh College yesterday.

Pupils at the Kahui Ako (community of learning) collected non-perishable foods as part of this year’s social justice project.

After coming out of the Covid-19 lockdown, the pupils saw a need to support others in the Dunedin community.

They were inspired by the idea of giving back with small donations from individuals collectively making a huge difference to the lives of others.
