ST Columba Anglican School's Interact Club have done their part to help the homeless by donating swags to local organisation New Horizons.
The club has a mission to assist the wider community at a local, national and international level.
It is guided in this endeavour by Sunrise Rotary and generously supported by the school community in its various fundraising.
At an assembly on Wednesday the school presented New Horizon's manager Darryl Barleycorn with eight backpack beds from the Swags For The Homeless charity.
This provided an additional four swags with the order in recognition of the important work being done by the students.
New Horizons offers a range of services in Port Macquarie including supporting people with disabilities and mental health issues to maintain tenancies in affordable and safe housing and helping those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
"It's great that young people are taking notice of the issues that face our community every day," Mr Barleycorn said.
"Port Macquarie is a beautiful seaside town and lots of people come here on holiday but not everyone sees the other side of that. There are a lot of people who aren't as fortunate and who do not have a home to live in."
Currently, New Horizons have up to 200 people per month in Port Macquarie who needs assistance.
"There will be a lot of people who don't have access to places to stay, beds to sleep in so this donation will certainly help," he said.
St Columba Anglican School captain Madeleine Brown said it was fantastic to be able to give back to their community.
"It's a fantastic cause especially because homelessness is such a prominent issue in our society," she said.
"Interact likes to focus on local problems and issues and the fundraiser was international community day, so we focused on issues in the community and we believed this was a very important one."
