Collecting goodies for foster kids

By Tanayah Wakefield

Picking up a few extra items at the shops to help bring a smile to a child in need is an easy task for students at Clontarf Beach State High School.

The school is again collecting essential items such as clothes, toiletries, toys, games and books to give to children in foster care.

From now until September, the school will be gathering items to bundle into backpacks and suitcases for the not-for-profit organisation Hope in a Suitcase.

Last year, students collected enough items to fill 48 backpacks, but they hope to fill even more this year.

Teacher Belinda Edwards says students have already started shopping for the cause.

“The fact that these kids are thinking of others is really wonderful,” Belinda says.

“They really want to make sure that this year is bigger and better than before so they can help more kids in need.”
