This wonderful initiative was launched by Connor, with assistance from School Leaders Georgia Sulis and Kyah Cox.

The school has put a call out for non perishable items that can be used for food hampers for families the Salvation Army will be helping at Christmas Time,

School leader Georgia Sulis told News Of The Area, “We are looking for items such as non perishable food items, personal care items and toys both new and second hand ones in good condition.”

Youth Pastor Connor Hall commented, “These donations, along with hundreds of others, will be given as hampers to around 250 local families this year, up from 180 last year.”

“We are so grateful to school and community groups who get on board and help us achieve this.”

For every donation to the Irrawang Giving Tree, a raffle ticket will be given out by the front office staff at Irrawang High School.

For example, five tins of baked beans will earn the person donating five raffle tickets.

Some great examples of items to donate include, Pasta, rice, canned vegetables, baked beans, peanut butter, vegemite, nuts, trail mix, diced tomatoes, sauces, flour, cooking oils, canned fruit, long life milk, and canned protein food like tuna, salmon, chicken and beef stews.

The donations will be collected by the Salvation Army from Irrawang High School on 13 December.
