Thank You! | Update from The Salvation Army

The annual Salvation Army Christmas Appeal has become a valued tradition for the Rivermount College community. Each year, students collect hundreds of donations to assist The Salvation Army in supporting families in need at Christmas time.

We were delighted to receive an update recently, from our local branch of The Salvation Army, with news of how the 2019 Appeal brightened the lives of local families.

Salvation Army Major, Heather McKeow, presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the College, stating, “We’d like to thank the Rivermount College community for your generous donation of food and gift items for Christmas 2019.The donations enabled the Salvos to assist many families in the local area with the cost of providing Christmas for their loved ones.”

In addition to the Christmas Basket Appeal, our budding Year 9 entrepreneurs donated $500, raised through their Business Studies cake stalls throughout the year. 

Congratulations to all members of the College community for your tremendous support and we look forward to once again working with The Salvation Army in 2020.
