Asylum-Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) food drive – Term 2

During Term 2 (24 April – 23 June) will we once again be running our annual food drive for the Asylum-Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) – ASRC Foodbank

The ASRC is a charitable organisation which provides food, language education, legal and other advocacy services for those who are seeking asylum in Australia, most of whom are not entitled to government assistance.

While the ASRC appreciates any (non-perishable food, laundry, toiletry) item that you can spare, a list of most-needed items appears at the bottom of this post.
Labelled collection boxes will be kept in the foyer of the main office, and donors are asked to attach a house colour sticker (which will be kept next to the boxes) to the item(s) as it is/they are donated.

Houses score a point for each item donated which will go towards overall house points and rewards (e.g. the end-of-term BBQ) for members of the ‘winning’ house.

Most-needed items:
☑️Tuna in oil 400g
☑️Olive oil (750mL – 1L)
☑️Raw unsalted nuts almonds, walnuts, cashews
☑️Honey small bottles
☑️Dried fruit apricots, dates
☑️Spices small packs cumin, turmeric, chilli, garam masala, curry powder
☑️Tomato paste
☑️Toothbrushes and toothpaste
☑️Laundry power max 1kg

A big thank you to those members of our community who donated items this week.

Well, it is still early days, but I guess the question on everybody’s lips is: Will any other be able to catch Red House? While there was a late charge from Blue House (and we appreciate every item!), it did not even nearly match the earlier-in-the-week contributions from Red House. And, in a turn-up for the books, Green House which has always been a power house when it comes to the food drive, is coming dead last. Come on, Green House, you need to lift your game!

The running totals at the end of Week #3 are as follows:

Red House: 105 items

Blue House: 39 items

Yellow House: 22 items

Green House 8 items

A big thank you to those members of our community who donated items this week.
