Kingaroy kids give angels a helping hand

GROWING up on a farm, Chloe Brady knows first hand how drought can impact a family.

Now, as a student leader at St John's Lutheran School, she is giving back to Queenslanders who have been hit hardest by the drought.

"We live on a farm and we have lost a lot of cattle so we know what it would be like, but they have lost a lot more," she said.

The whole school has rallied behind the project, donating hundreds of grocery items to Drought Angels.

"I wanted do donate things because people have lost everything and they have nothing to have," St John's student leader Olivia Grundy said.

"Hopefully it will help them for a couple of weeks so they can start building up some more money while they already have food."

The donations include first aid kits, mosquito repellent and long-life milk as instructed by Drought Angels.

The Parents and Friends Association embraced the idea put forward by the Corsan family and have been overwhelmed by the communities response.

"It is amazing, we couldn't walk into the foyer when we first got here," Jacqui Trace, from the association, said.

The drought has been on the kids' minds and Mrs Trace was proud to see kids include letters and make thoughtful choices when donating.

"We went this way rather than money because it is something the kids can see that is going to a community," she said.

The food will make its way to the Drought Angels in Chinchilla where it will be dispersed.
