Jammies in June Collection
Collection bins will be outside the school office for the month of June.Once again we are collecting new pyjama’s, dressing gowns, bed socks and slippers for the Middlemore Foundation for the month of June. Pyjamas help keep little chests toasty during chilly winter nights. Children that are warm at night are less likely to fall sick and admitted to hospital due to preventable illnesses. Acute Rheumatic Fever, a disease usually only found in third world countries, is prevalent in Counties Manukau.Each year Kidz First Hospital has approximately 320 children admitted in January and this increases to more than 700 in August. Within their region there are around 125,000 children under the age of 15, 54% of these children live in impoverished conditions.Your support with this collection is be greatly appreciated!
