Eight-year old Alexia Stevens has been hard at work this month putting in the hours to help the community.
The 3rd Orange Scout collected snacks, toys and crafts to donate to not-for-profit organisation headspace.
Alexia drew awareness to her cause through Facebook, asking friends and family to help her plight to help the Peisley Street service.
The collection of food goods and art stuff will be used during the after school and school-holiday programs, as well as for the mums and bubs group.
headspace Community Engagement Officer Sharna Lord said the centre is always in need of donations to help participants get the most out of their programs.
"Kids don't tend to focus on study groups when they're hungry," she said.
"And within our budget - it's just not there for things like this."
headspace Youth Reference Group volunteer said it was pretty amazing how far they managed to make donations like this stretch.
Alexia was motivated to collect for the cause to earn her final Scouts badge as a Joey, before she graduated to a Cub.
Ms Lord said the after school programs were particularly busy at this time of year and if anyone was looking to help out, snacks, reading material, sketch books and colouring-in books would come in handy.
