Back Packs 4 SA Kids

Broadview Football Club, Wed Jul 11, 2018 11:47AM

Dear Broadview Member

I am collecting for BackPacks 4 SA Kids, which is a charity organisation that provides backpacks to children of all ages to relieve some of the stress and anxiety children face when they are removed from their family, often in traumatic situations and without the opportunity to take any personal belongings with them.

The backpacks provided contain age appropriate emergency clothing, toiletries and other necessary supplies (such as nappies, bottles and cuddle toys) for children aged 0-16 years who are taken into care as a result of neglect or abuse, or who need to quickly leave their homes due to family violence, or who are experiencing homelessness.  Refer to http://backpacks4sakids.org/programs/backpacks for further information.

Broadview Football club will be running collections days on 4 and 5 of August for the BackPacks 4 Kids PJ Day.  There will be a stall at the club with further information on how this important charity helps kids during a traumatic time in their life, and you can give a donation on the day.

We are asking each Junior Football Team to fill a backpack with items suitable for their own age group, with the following items:

  • Backpacks
  • Pyjamas (sizes 0000 – 16)
  • Tops (sizes 0000 – 16)
  • Pants – short and long (sizes 0000 – 16)
  • Underwear (sizes 0000 – 16)
  • Bibs
  • Nappies
  • Pullups
  • Socks
  • Wraps for babies
  • Toiletries for all ages which include:
    • Toothbrush
    • Toothpaste
    • Soap
    • Shampoo
    • Conditioners
    • Deodorant
    • Brush/comb
    • Hair ties
  • Notebooks
  • Colouring-in book
  • Pens, pencils
  • Pencil case

If you are able to, please hand your donation to the stall on 4 or 5 August and if you have any questions please call me on 0427 406 041.
