Keira Powers and Oscar Brown-Gram with the pile of donated toys at Rainbow Beach school
We have amazing kids with huge hearts in this town!
This time last year we printed an article on kind-hearted Rainbow Beach State School student Keira Powers and how she organised a collection of toys to donate to the Gympie Toy Run for kids in needs.
Well she’s done it again, along with her equally generous friend Oscar Brown-Gram.
The pair arranged another toy drive last month – and thanks to the donations of students and locals ended up with another great bundle of gifts to make other kids’ Christmas dreams come true.
The toys were then added to others collected throughout the Gympie region and distributed by the Military Brotherhood MMC Cooloola-Sunshine Coast sub branch on 10 December 2022.
Keira’s proud mum Marissa Paulden says:
“The toy drive was a huge success with kids at the school and from the wider community donating toys.
We would like to give special thanks to Rainbow Beach State School for being the collection point.
Keira and Oscar plan to continue the yearly tradition with the support from the community.”
