"Daystar is committed to early intervention of youth problems."
Daystar recognises that for many students, their basic needs are not met. To address this issue Daystar provides essentials such as toiletries, towels, Winter clothing, food items and stationery to children and families in need. We also provide financial assistance to the schools from time to time to enable a special experience for students.
At present Daystar provides this service on an ad-hoc basis following requests from families or identification of such needs by Daystar volunteers.
The local community and some of our corporate partners support our Basic Needs Drives as required.
Past corporate Basic Needs Drives have included:
For Campbellfield Public School, Daystar provided a financial contribution to enable the engagement of a major Aboriginal Dance Troupe to help all the children celebrate National Aboriginal Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) week.
