Meals desperately needed!
In support of our SMC community, the school with support of the PTFA, manages a freezer, which stocks meals for families and their whanau who are either going through a difficult time or bereavement. This scheme has been running for many years and has assisted hundreds of families. Families who have benefited from this initiative have been very grateful as it relieves the stress of providing meals at such times.
Meals that are greatly appreciated include family sized lasagnes, pastas, mild curries, stews, soups, garlic breads, freezable baked goods and other such meals that freeze well. It is often difficult to co-ordinate the return of packaging, so please package accordingly. If you would like to donate a meal, these can be dropped off at the school office between the hours of 8.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday.
We understand that often it is difficult to reach out and ask for help, however, please remember each meal is made with love and the good intention of helping the families in our SMC community, therefore, you are encouraged to reach out and let us help you, or your whanau.
SMC may from time to time contact you should we be made aware of a bereavement or a difficult patch, simply because you may forget the service is available and we want to help in any way possible.
