MEMBERS of an out-of-school-hours care group have been cooking up a storm to help an underprivileged school in Peru.
The Two-4-Peru concept is simple: students and staff from Albury’s OOSH program have been collecting two items of children’s clothing or receiving $2 coins in return for baked goods.
The fund-raiser is the brainchild of OOSH educator Brianna McIntyre.
Miss McIntyre recently returned from the country and felt inspired to help.
“We visited a school for single mothers who could not afford normal schooling,” she said.
“The aim of this project is to collect children’s clothes that we can send to the school.
“The money we raise will pay for postage and we will hopefully have enough to buy some other items of clothing.”
Miss McIntyre expected the school to be surprised by the amount of donations.
“Students, staff and families have been very generous with their donations,” she said.
The donations will be shipped to Peru at the end of this school term.
