And that’s exactly what happened at Sunday’s Connect4Good program as Kids Giving Back brought together 4 community groups to inspire primary school aged kids to engage in community projects. Gathering at the stunning @Hurstville Community Gardens, the kids helping with the new sensory garden and packed care packs for women and children challenged with domestic violence.
The kids painted signs for the sensory garden, planted the winter veggie snow peas, picked rosemary and lavender from the garden to make potpourri, and even decorated and potted their own strawberry planter to take home. 50 Care-Paks for children and their mums were warmly received by Jan Christie on behalf of MovingForward, a service for women and children who are experiencing, escaping or have left family and domestic violence.
A big thank you to Kmart Australia, Woolworths, Bunnings-Randwick and students from Bellevue Hill Public School Official for all your generous donations which assisted in making this program possible.
Thank you too to Charlotte, Krsnangi and Lucy from Hurstville Community Gardens for sharing your passion for and knowledge about the garden! Our kids loved the incredible activities you engaged them in, and we look forward to coming back soon!
To all the fantastic kids who participated in our Block One programs and made a difference to such a range of communities, you are the next generation of generosity – THANK YOU!
Our next Connect4Good block of 3 programs starts on Sunday 17th June – we can’t wait to meet our new group!
