Students make Easter special for the homeless
Students from Pymble Ladies College are helping The Exodus Foundation make this Easter special by creating gift packs of chocolate Easter eggs to give to the homeless and less advantaged people.
“We wanted to do something different and a bit special for those in need, but also a bit of fun for us”, said Sarah, one of the year 9 students from PLC.
The students donated their time to create hundreds of Easter gift packs.
“We are really grateful for their help”, said The Exodus Foundation’s founder the Rev. Bill Crews. “They do an amazing job and I’m sure they got a lot from the experience too.”
PLC has a long association with The Exodus Foundation. For five years their students have volunteered in The Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant as part of the school’s program of community involvement and social awareness.
Over these years they have come to know many of the people helped by The Exodus Foundation.
“We’ve all learnt so much as volunteers here at Exodus. It has opened my eyes”, said Ashley, another of the PLC students.
The Exodus Foundation is currently running its Easter Appeal. You can give hope and help by donating online at www.exodusfoundation.net.
