I'm helping with a little idea called The Welcome Bag Project which aims to provide a fully stocked school bag to each of the Syrian children soon to be arriving in Victoria. It is being organised through Mums for Refugees who are linked with West Welcome Wagon.
We need donations of new school bags, lunch boxes, water bottles, hats, pencil cases, notebooks, and all sorts of stationary. If anyone would like to help with donations small or large it would be greatly appreciated. It would be lovely if they could start school in 2016 with everything they need as well as a sense of welcome from the community. I would need donations by the 14th January.
