Gaynor Students Show Their Global Community Spirit

Posted on Friday, January 31st, 2020

Gaynor students are committed to being good global citizens, the latest example of which is their work to help contribute to the relief efforts for Australian wildfires.

During their bake sale this week, the Community Service Club of Intermediate and Upper Division students raised over $660 dollars for the RSPCA of Australia’s National Bushfire Appeal.  The Community Service Club staffed the tables, and students from both divisions contributed baked goods for the sale. 

In addition, Gaynor’s Youth Animal Protection (YAP) Club held an additional bake sale that netted $330 in donations to the WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) organization, which has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and is the largest wildlife rescue organization in Australia. WIRES responded to the students’ donation with a message saying, “Your generosity will make a significant difference by helping us in our work assisting tens of thousands of animals every year. Please know that we are committed to improving outcomes for native animals and that we act with integrity and use donations wisely.”

Both bake sales were student-led efforts; Gaynor students saw a need in the greater community, and came together to help. We are very proud of their work!
