Trist House Supporting Families in Need
On the first Monday of the holidays, many students, parents and teachers gave up their time to volunteer at the Mums Supporting Families in Need warehouse.
When we arrived, we had a tour of the warehouse and learnt about the amazing work the MSFIN do for the families in our community. After our tour and safety induction, it was time to get to work! Some of our tasks included cleaning and sorting toys, packing away winter clothes, sorting out and hanging summer clothes and sorting linen. The volunteers at MSFIN were extremely grateful for our help and I was very proud of the many Trist House students who volunteered their time, got out of their comfort zone and supported this wonderful community organisation.
A big thank you goes to the students, parents, Miss Nolan, Mrs Willett, Ms Burns, Mr Medlyn and Mr Baird for their attendance - your support is greatly appreciated. In the lead up to Christmas, we are still collecting donations on behalf of the MSFIN, so if you have any pre-loved items you no longer need, please drop them off at 3R. Stay tuned for the details of our next volunteer day in December!
