The September Holidays is usually filled with fun for our students and the families that attend Camp Heide. Unfortunately, we could not go ahead these holidays, but a group of generous staff members gave up some precious time to make up hampers for the families in West Heidelberg that missed out on the camp.
The packages included a “Make it yourself” Brownie Kit, and our Social Justice Leaders wrote beautiful letters to the children to accompany the kits where they shared their own experiences of lockdown. The hampers created a great buzz upon delivery and Brother Harry from the Exodus Community expressed his appreciation on behalf of the families:
“We at Exodus continue to be grateful for the practical and moral support offered by you all at OLMC Heidelberg and hope that, through this involvement many learn about the plight of others in the community whose life circumstances are sometimes pretty dire”.
