School Savvy FNQ aims to assist local families on low incomes or those who are going through challenging times. We all know that Christmas and the summer months are an expensive time for all families. Add to that the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to purchase new school uniforms, as well as text books and school supplies can become a huge struggle, and all of that straight after Christmas.
In early January we open the School Savvy pop-up shop which sells low cost, new and second-hand uniforms and school supplies which were collected during the School Savvy Appeal. The shop will also provide information and resources for parents and an opportunity for learning and skill development in the retail trade for Centacare trainees.
School Savvy is now in it's 5th year!
The School Savvy Appeal is calling on families and year 12 students to dig out those uniforms that their children have grown out of or they no longer need, to put them to good use by donating to the School Savvy FNQ Appeal. Pre-loved and new uniforms and school supplies in good condition can be dropped off at Centacare FNQ, during business hours or at any local St Vincent De Paul outlets.
Centacare FNQ is also calling on local Businesses to get on board by donating unwanted quality stationery supplies such as pens, calculators rulers etc.
