YEAR 11 students at Horsham’s St Brigid’s College have created toiletry packs to donate to homeless people.
Student Seb Dalgleish said they had been collecting toiletries for the packs over the past few weeks.
HE said the packs include shampoo, soap, hand wash, sewing kits, water and sanitary items.
“We are going to give them to those who are less fortunate,” he said.
Student Corey McKerron said many businesses had donated items to the cause.
“The Horsham Town Hall donated water and GWMWater donated water bottles,” he said.
The students will head to Adelaide on Monday as part of a school retreat.
Corey said when the students were in Adelaide, whenever they saw anyone who was homeless, they would give them a pack.
Seb said it was great to see the support from businesses.
He said the experience would be good for the students.
“It’s about doing the right thing and I think this will help open people’s eyes about the issues out there,” he said.
The retreat will run from Monday to Friday.
The students who created that packs went to a Halogen Youth Leadership seminar in November.
This seminar inspired the students to make a difference in their town.
