Community Wall01 May 2019
Support your local community and give a little to those in need.
Today we launched our new charity at our Community Wall for the Lions Club Schools Breakfast Club Program. The Schools Breakfast Club Program provides disadvantaged Primary School children with a wholesome breakfast before school which helps them to engage and excel in the classroom.
It may come as a shock for people to learn that so many children in WA are going to school hungry. This program identifies children who arrive at school having had little or no breakfast. While the reasons for this vary greatly, low income, poverty, remoteness and lack of access to nutritious food make children and families vulnerable to food insecurity.
The Schools Breakfast Club Program ensures that all students have an equal opportunity to receive a wholesome, nutritious breakfast every day. Product may also be used to provide 'emergency meals', such as recess and lunch, during the school day.
For the month of May, we are seeking the following donations to assist The Lions Club of Rockingham in delivering nutritious breakfast to needy students:
- Muesli Bars (nut free)
- Long Life Milk
- Baked Beans
- Canned Spaghetti
- Long Life Juice
- Spreads; Vegemite, Jam, Honey, Nutella etc
If you would like to donate, please do so at our Community Wall located opposite Coles, or at our Customer Service Desk located in our Fashion Mall.
Rockingham Centre is proud to partner with the Lions Club of Rockingham to support our local community and charity partners. The Lions Club of Rockingham is a volunteer organisation comprised of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the local community.
