Stocked for Vinnies Can Drive

Teresa Croker (Year 11)

Starting mid Term 2, our Young Vinnies team organized a can drive for Auckland St Vincent De Paul Society. With amazing promotion, some volunteers went around every second homeroom to collect these cans!

As a bonus to this, every person who brought in 5 cans received a house point and the homeroom with the most cans won a delicious pizza lunch!

Through the generosity of students, parents and staff several boxes of cans were packed in F block. Then with the help of our Vinnies leaders all the cans were counted.

In total, more than 530 cans were donated by our Sancta Maria Community!

A small portion of these cans will be used in an upcoming school project while the rest go to Auckland Vinnies. Here, they will be distributed to families who need it most during this cold season of winter.

A big thank you to everyone that contributed to the Vinnies Can Drive. Through your giving and faith, we bring hope into people’s lives and show them the light of Christ.
