March 2011 Recipients
A $5,000 grant to Angelslight Breakfast Club in South Auckland will help the programme’s volunteers to provide nourishing breakfasts to hungry school children.
The grant will be used to purchase two commercial dishwashers which will allow volunteers to clean up quickly and ensure the programme’s extremely strict hygiene standards are adhered to.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant. It’s going to help our volunteers to run our breakfast programme in a more efficient way,” says Leanne Rohloff, Fundraising Coordinator for Angelslight Breakfast Club.
“We know that when children are hungry they are unable to learn. We serve the students a nourishing breakfast and send them off to class ready to start their day.”
The club is part of the Papakura Christian Services Trust and has been providing free and nutritious breakfasts to children at five Papakura schools over the past 10 years and has more schools waiting to join the programme.
