Mount Sinai College - Pop-up Shuk

Mount Sinai College Year 6 Charity Committee are hosting a Pop-up Shuk to raise money for three chosen Charities. At the Pop-up Shuk, students will be selling homemade items and baked goods to raise the funds. These charities use the much needed funds to help survivors of the October 7th attacks in Israel rebuild their lives. The Charities are: The Summit Institute, which provides support for foster families in Israel, and Zaka, which helps with the search and rescue of missing civilians and soldiers. We will also be contributing to the Sydney Sock Project which helps those in need in Sydney.

Project 1 Silverstream Reserve - conservation area
Thirteen adults, 2 school age children and 2 preschoolers met at Silverstream Reserve just outside of Christchurch and were greeted by a small group of regular volunteers. After a safety briefing and a discussion about our task, we set to work clearing around the young native plants which had been previously planted. Over morning tea we learnt more about the reserve. The regular volunteers were very excited to see so many people working to clear the area and have invited us to return during the winter months to help with planting more trees. Several people indicated that they would be interested in doing so.
Project 2 Donations to It Takes A Village - helping families by providing items that are needed for young children
Over the last few months members of the Canterbury Hebrew Congregation have donated items suitable for children up to the age of 5. We had a great response from the community. The organisation creates bundles of things specific to the person who has applied for assistance. The person we were in contact with was very grateful saying at this time of year especially, there were a very large number of people applying for help.
