Thursdays in Black: Blanket appeal

Found in the Central Leader yesterday, Marist College in Mt Albert is coordinating a blanket drive to provide blankets and rugs to women's refuges and emergency housing.

Marist's social justice group of around 400 girls have come up with the idea, and project organiser Carolyn Phillips says "The students felt that with winter well and truly here, they would concentrate their efforts on helping women and children who no longer find it safe to live in their home and for families in emergency housingn facilities."

If you have any clean blankets or rugs to contribute you can take them into the school office or phone Ms Phillips on 09 846-8311 for more information.
