La Salle Bankstown helping to break through the barriers of loneliness and isolation

Over thirty year 9 and 10 students from La Salle Catholic College, Bankstown, have volunteered their time to create packs and meals for people in need as part of the St Vincent de Paul Night Patrol Service.

The night patrol service consists of two vans, operating seven nights per week, providing a meal, blankets, toiletries, snacks, hot beverages and most importantly, companionship to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness within the inner city of Sydney, to help break through the barriers of loneliness and isolation that many living on the fringe of society suffer.

In total, 80 snack packs were provided by the students. The Bankstown community are also collecting knitting squares which will be sewn into blankets for the homeless.

Due to the successful feedback from students, the initiative will be continued on an annual basis.
