Winter Sleep Out 2016

Winter Sleep Out 2016 - $2367.60 raised

On Friday night 19 students from across all year levels along with 6 staff spent the night at school, sleeping rough in order to raise awareness around the issue of homelessness. Between the group we raised a huge amount of money that will be donated to St. Vincent De Paul and to Hope St. Both organisations work for the care of the homeless, the latter working particularly in Melton. 
The CRC community also supplied hundreds of dollars worth of toiletries to One Voice ( shower bus) along with some bags of clothes, beanies, hats, gloves, scarves etc. 
The message that came across from all of our amazing guest speakers was that homelessness does not discriminate, it effects people from all sections of society and that it is important to reach out to someone if experiencing hardship. 
Congratulations to the whole community, including those that participated, those that sponsored students and those that donated. These funds will make a difference to the lives of others.
