Mercedes College Students Donate Needed Items for Foster Children

Mercedes College Year 12 students have donated backpacks filled with gifts for children to Operation Sunshine Western Australia (OSWA). The students worked with the community to collect the gifts to create age and gender appropriate packs.

“The packing of these backpacks for children going into foster care was such a special thing to be a part of, knowing that you are giving to others who are going through a very challenging time in their lives,” Said student, Sarah Ekholm.

The backpacks are distributed via the organisation to children in out-of-home care situations where they often have nothing but the clothes they are wearing when they arrive.
