Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal

As you are all aware the annual Salvation Army Red Shield Doorknock Appeal is on this Sunday 27th May. The response from students has been overwhelming, their generosity, kindness and thoughtful nature has provided with more than enough student volunteers.

Together we can make a difference…....

Over the past 20 years Christian College Geelong has developed a tradition of lending our support to the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal which supports local and overseas people in need. By giving of a small amount of our time, we can raise a significant amount to assist others less fortunate than ourselves.  Well do to those who have volunteered.

 

Homelessness Sleepout

On Wednesday evening a group of students joined staff to hear from a special person in Andy. He is the human face of “homelessness” sleeping in his car and receiving the benefit of the good work from the Christ Church meals program.

Here is their program:

The Christ Church Community Meals and Emergency Food Relief Program

The program commenced approximately twenty-five years ago. It began initially as a breakfast project, and six months into the program a need became evident for an evening meal. These meals are provided on Monday and Wednesday evenings. There are also daily emergency food parcels being distributed from the church between 12.00 and 2.00pm daily.

Our clients are homeless, the poor, the frail, the lonely, recovering addicts of various sorts, and those with mental issues. We operate with a volunteer base of about one hundred. The volunteers come from all walks of life, including various religions, service clubs and hospitals to name a few. We do not have any paid employees.

Food and other supplies are sourced from various generous business houses, organisations and individuals, as are donations of a monetary nature. Breakfast is cereal, cooked bacon, eggs, sausages as well as tea and coffee. The evening meal is a cooked, nutritious, well-balanced three course meal. Fresh vegetables are always used.

We are currently serving about 600 meals per week, and in 2011 celebrated having provided 500,000 meals to those in need in Geelong

What a great story and how proud are we to have Christ Church doing such good work for our community.

 

Student Car Parking

College students who choose to drive to school are able to park in the RTC. This is a result of our good relationship with them and the students have certainly appreciated this privilege.

They need to apply for a permit and are to leave the car park after 3.40pm so as to avoid the traffic congestion. This is a wonderful service we have been able to provide our students.
