Backpacks for VIC Kids

Backpacks for VIC Kids are a registered not for profit charitable organisation run by volunteers and a part-time manager. Their purpose is to aid children going into foster care without much more than what they are wearing at the time. Backpacks for VIC Kids strives to provide foster children with a few essential items to help with the transition. 

 

We will be setting up a charity box downstairs near the office where you can donate a backpack. We are also looking to collect new essential items such as toiletries, clothing, sleepwear, a torch, blanket, pillowcase, towel, toys or an activity which will belong to a child and will stay with them should they be relocated. These items will be collected by Backpacks for VIC Kids and given to children aged 0-17 years of age entering foster care in Victoria 

 

All Donations are much appreciated!

 

Our target is to collect 25 girl backpacks and 25 boy backpacks!!
