St Mary's students help needy with food vouchers

FOOD vouchers will be handed out to those in need in Maryborough thanks to the fundraising of St Mary's Primary School students.

The school hosted a morning tea on the last day of Term 3 yesterday to donate more than $1000 to the St Vincent de Paul winter appeal program.

Staff and Year 7 leadership students sold home-made soup and cups of Milo to raise money. St Mary's Primary School spokesman Stuart McKinnon said the money would be given out by St Vincent de Paul in the form of food cards, which could then be used at the Foodworks store at Maryborough Plaza.

Mr McKinnon said students had also donated non-perishable food, clothes and other items earlier this year. It was the first time the school had teamed up with Foodworks owners Woolworths and St Vincent de Paul for the appeal.

Woolworths assistant store manager Grant Ollett said the business would also contribute to the appeal.
