Tis the season to give

Published: Wednesday 16th December 2015

The Office of Planning and Strategic Management (OPSM) participated in a community engagement activity day in support of The Smith Family’s Christmas Gift Appeal on Tuesday, 8 December 2015.

The Smith Family, an independent non-profit children's charity aims to create opportunities for disadvantaged children and their families and encourage them to participate more fully in society, using education as the a key tool.

The OPSM Team enjoyed giving back to the community by helping gift prep items for children in need. These included activities such as, unpacking stationery items and creating parcels such as, pencil cases filled with rulers, erasers, sharpeners, crayons, HB Pencils, stickers, scissors and markers, to name a few items as well as unwrapping pre-packaged donated goods containing books and toys for both boys and girls of different age groups. Overall staff enjoyed the experience and team building exercises.
