Gosford High School graduate, Karl Harris, and the school’s senior leadership team have joined forces to donate gifts to the community charity, We Care Connect.
The gifts will be part of hundreds of others going to disadvantaged children aged 12-17 across the Central Coast.
This is the third year Harris has been involved in a
Christmas drive, starting his first one at the school in 2018, and following it with another one in 2019.
Harris said he has always been involved with We Care Connect.
“My nan and grandpa founded this charity,” Harris said.
“I have helped them set up the warehouse, have been involved in plenty of Bunnings barbecues, and a bunch of other miscellaneous things.
This year, Harris initiated and ran the Christmas drive himself. “Because my grandparents started it, that is why I am particularly involved with the
charity,” he said.
“I think it is super cool what
they have done, and it is also nice to help people.”
We Care Connect supports thousands of children in crisis across the Central Coast and Hunter with clothing, bedding, car seats, cots, prams and a
wide range of essential care and safety items.
Over the last three years it has given over 60,000 items to more than 3500 children in need.
“Gosford High School is one of the drop off points for Christmas donations and I ran that drop off point,” Harris said.
“It is fun, and I think It is cool to help my grandparents with this charity,” Harris said.
