St Josephs Matamata - Labelling tins for the food bank

St Josephs is our smallest primary school where the youth coordinator has the privilege to work with 8 young vinnies in Matamata on Wednesday afternoon during class time.

This group wanted to give back to the St Vincent De Paul Society who supports the Young Vinnies. The first task that was completed within three weeks was to help the Cameron Rd Op Shop in Tauranga sort through, clean and test 15 boxes full of donated toys before they went out for sale.

The second task involved labelling blank tins that have been donated to be given out at the St Vincent de Paul support centre. Alongside these projects the Young Vinnies voted to learn about the impact of gambling has on individuals and their families.

Well done! St Josephs, Matamata for a small primary school, doing amazing big work.
