Red Cross Clutter Buster

September 17, 2016

Girl Guides from Ballarat have participated in the Red Cross Clutter Buster program.

redcross2016-44c2The Guides spent time during the holiday period, and term 3, accumulating a collection of bags to donate to the local Red Cross. The Guides and their families cleaned out their cupboards to identify clothing and household items that they no longer required and would be better utilised by others in need.

The items were presented to a representative from the Ballarat Red Cross store.
