As the St Vincent de Paul Society highlights, “For many people, Christmas is a joyful time of year. However, the sad reality is that 13.3% of Australians are living in poverty. Of these, 731,000 are children who may not get their Christmas wish. But your support can make a difference.”
Even in our current economy, many families are just one step away from crisis and poverty. A little help at the right time can change everything for those in our community. Supporting the Christmas Appeal is a wonderful way to prompt students to appreciate all that they have by thinking of others in need. The appeal is but one of many Christian Service Learning opportunities encouraged throughout the year at the College.
A huge thanks to all the generous Corpus families who donated to the Vinnies Christmas Appeal this year. Your generous support will make a difference to many families this Christmas.
