Banksia Grove shoppers are being urged to ‘pay it forward’ thanks to St Stephen’s School.

Banksia Grove Village has recently partnered with St Stephen’s School and UnitingCare West to install a donation box outside Coles.

Branded with the ‘pay it forward’ slogan, the box encourages the wider community to get involved in giving back by donating items such as non-perishable food.

As part of the school’s service learning, which sees staff and students out in the community each week helping those less fortunate, the donations will be collected and given to UnitingCare West to deliver to its clients.
