Give a Kid a Blanket

School Values in Action!
Year 10 students Bella Wood and Lily Roebeck are doing their best to raise awareness of those in need - and would love your help!
Inspired by their form teacher, Barb Brewer, who raised the topic demonstrating school values to help others in the community, Bella and Lily decided to take up the challenge school-wide and make a difference.
Planning, advertising, speaking at upcoming levels assemblies and staff meetings, are all part of their plan to inform students, staff and the community about the Give-a-Kid-a-Blanket Winter Appeal.
If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause and keep the winter ills and chills at bay, please bring your donated second-hand blankets, duvets, and/or sleeping bags to the school office. They will be warmly received by Bella and Lily - and taken to Titirangi Library, ready for collection. Students can drop off donated items to Student Reception or G6 at Form time.
During these colder months (June and July) the Give-a-Kid-a-Blanket charity primarily focuses on the West Auckland area, in collaboration with support services such as Waitemata Police, WDHB public health nurses and Social Workers, Women’s Refuge groups and Charitable Trusts, gathering donations from community hubs for instant distribution.
