Southern Highlands Schools Donate Emergency Essentials

18 January 2020

Local schools throughout the Southern Highlands have come together to support those affected by the devastating bushfires. In a show of solidarity with affected communities, St Thomas Aquinas Bowral, St Michael’s Mittagong and St Paul’s College Moss Vale have rallied to purchase toiletries and other essentials to be distributed by Vinnies.

“In such a difficult time it is heartening to see the community get behind people in need,” said Peter Doris, Vinnies Southern Highlands Regional President, who is extremely grateful for the support shown by local schools.

“Vinnies is here to support people now and during the recovery stage. It will be a long road back in the coming months and years, but at every stage we will be there listening to the needs of people as they rebuild their lives,” Peter said.
