Centacare Bundaberg staff Maija Stewart, Rechelle Dodds and Joanne Kenzler are thrilled that uniforms are already being donated for the School Savvy program.

Now the school year is over don’t discard old uniforms, donate them to a worthy cause through Centacare’s School Savvy program.

Officially launched in Bundaberg last week, School Savvy CQ is an initiative to provide preloved uniforms and basic stationery supplies to families who are struggling financially, at extremely low cost.

School Savvy CQ project assistant Danielle Mitchell said the team was overwhelmed by the support and generosity of the local community so far.

In its first weeks, School Savvy Bundaberg has already received sways of pre-loved uniforms, stationery and monetary donations, which will be used to purchase further stationery items commonly found on back to school booklists.

The items will be available at a pop-up shop opening next month.

“The Bundaberg pop-up shop will be open all week long, kicking off from January 13, 2020 at the Civic Centre in Bourbong Street,” Danielle said.

“We are more than happy to receive donations from the community, in particular pre-loved uniforms now that school has finished up.”

School Savvy uniforms and stationery available

Families who are experiencing financial difficulties can attend the pop-up shop held at the Civic Centre at 190 Bourbong Street from 9am to 4pm throughout the week.

Offering uniforms, exercise books, scrapbooks, pens, pencils, rulers and so much more, School Savvy helps to ensure that all children within our community have the right resources needed to succeed at school.

School Savvy does not apply eligibility criteria.

The shop operates on an honesty policy where people are asked to respect the program as one that helps those struggling financially.

Donation points can be found on the School Savvy website.
