Thank you for your support

The Back to School Drive is now finished and we're overwhelmed with your generosity. The volunteers at Friends with Dignity are busy sorting through all of the donated bags to get them to their new owners before school starts. 

Stay tuned for the next Friends with Dignity Drive event.

What has been happening over the past 4 weeks: 
We asked the community of Newcastle to help our Little Friends in refuge stand out for all the right reasons this coming school year when Marketown partnered with Friends with Dignity as a collection point for back to school donations.

How the community has helped:
So many wonderful people helped by purchasing a new backpack and filled it with school items as listed below:
• Pen
• Lead pencils
• Highlighter
• Notepad
• Pencil Case
• Coloured Pencils
• Eraser
• Glue Stick
• Clear Contact
• Lunch Box
• Water Bottle
• Coloured Markers
• Label Stickers
• Ruler
• Calculator
• Crayons
