Your support helped 14 Children!

On behalf of Backpacks 4 VIC Kids team of volunteers, thank you so very much for the thoughtful and generous donations you have made towards our "School Supplies for kids like J" fundraiser. 

No words can describe a child’s fear of an unknown future; the anxiety of meeting dozens of unfamiliar people – social workers, carers; the embarrassment of not having appropriate clothing to wear, or school supplies to attend class the next morning. 

Having basic school supplies can help vulnerable kids, like J, to feel more confident in achieving their learning targets. 

With your support, we were able to source items and pack 14 customised School Essentials packs. 

4 packs were picked up by a local foster carer for school aged children in her care (4 boys aged 5, 8, 12 and 13). We provided the variety of school stationery, lunchboxes, water bottles, pencilcases, crayons, pencils, sharpener, hats, socks. 

10 packs will be delivered to the agency Uniting Croydon. 

Thank you once again for your generosity! Your continued support would be very much appreciated.  

Please follow this link if you would like us to provide further feedback from the carers. 

With appreciation, Alla on behalf of B4VK team
