Piper Menteith has taken on a ‘Maxpotential’ community service project through Mary Mac’s where she plans to collect items such as toiletries, lightweight tents and non-perishable food and drinks for the homeless on the Central Coast.
Piper says: ” I believe there is a need for this as I walk around and see the homeless on the streets begging for food or money and it has really impacted me – it’s a very upsetting thing. So, I would like to try and make their lives a little easier and better.”
I am aiming to collect at least 5 bags of items as described above to distribute to the less fortunate and through this project I hope to promote a greater awareness of the needy, Max Potential and the Mary Mac’s organisation. I also hope to encourage others to assist the homeless.
If you would like to donate any goods could you please bring them to the school or send with your child for collection at reception, Building 16 by August 14.
