AN Edithvale girl is baking up muffins to raise money for the needy during Homelessness Week (6-12 August).
Edithvale Primary School pupil Airlie Smith is aiming to bake hundreds of muffins in a hired industrial kitchen to raise funds for Chelsea Care Works.
Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson visited the school last month to congratulate the year 6 pupil on the fundraiser.
“This is a really great example of a positive community focused initiative being run by a young, kind-hearted local student,” he said.
Airlie’s mother, Holly Smith, thanked 4 Cousins, Coles in Patterson Lakes, Woolworths in Chelsea and Mordialloc, IGA Aspendale Gardens and The Cove Hotel in Patterson Lakes for donating cooking ingredients.
Homelessness Week is an annual week coordinated by Homelessness Australia to raise awareness of people experiencing homelessness, the challenges they face and the action needed to find solutions.
