Today, some of our school council children visited the ‘Shoe box Appeal’ warehouse, in Jarrow. It gave them the chance to see first hand the work of the fabulous volunteers who work for the Samaritan’s Purse.
The children were amazed at the generosity of local people and were in awe at the amount of shoe boxes that had been filled. They had the opportunity to speak to the volunteers and ask questions about where the shoe boxes go.
They learned about what can and can’t go into the shoe boxes and were told how the shoe boxes are packed and sent off.
The children thoroughly enjoyed teaming up with one of the volunteers and loved examining the contents, adding and removing items to make it the ‘perfect box’.
As always the children were a credit to our school and were so thankful to everyone working for this amazing charity.
