We have now started to outreach in South Brisbane on Tuesday night. The feedback we have received so far is very positive. Some of our friends on the street wait for us at the park. Other hang around with us until we leave.
Rosies received many expression of interest of young people under 18 who want to get involved and cannot volunteer with us due to their age. Well, San Sisto College find an alternative for their year 7s and 8s. The school committed to help Rosies every month by sending a group of students to the Brisbane outreach room. Students help us by cleaning the vans and room, restocking, and much more! It makes a big difference to all our teams in Brisbane. Likewise many other schools actively supporting Rosies throughout the year, San Sisto college Year 12 take part to our Student Engagement Program.
On the Gold Coast Rosies Coordinator Kathleen paid a visit to Elanora State High School. The school coordinated a much appreciated drive of non perishable food for our drop in centre in Southport.
Last but not least, our friends from Making a Difference (MaD) have collected and put together in a record time sixty backpacks filled with men’s toiletries for our Logan branch.
Tomorrow Rosies will be at Schoolies for the 30th consecutive year helping young school leavers stay hydrated while celebrating. We wish a safe and enjoyable time to all school leavers and a week without worry to their parents.
