​Winter is an extremely challenging time of year for the homeless and those less fortunate, for one Year 12 student, Gabby Crotty, it become a personal challenge. Gabby took up the challenge to collect as many blankets as possible to donate to the St Vincent’s de Paul Winter Blanket Appeal.

A spokesperson from Vinnies said the demand for warm blankets at this time of year is high but supplies are low so the assistance will be greatly appreciated by many.

Gabby put out a call to our school community whose generosity was overwhelming, with over 170 blankets being donated.

On Monday’s parade Gabby presented the blankets to Vinnies representatives, Jim McDougall, President, St Bernard’s Conference, St Vincent de Paul Society QLD and Anthony Forshaw, Youth Engagement and Development Officer, St Vincent de Paul Society QLD.
