Connect People is proud and excited to be actively supporting Backpacks 4 VIC Kids, a registered not-for-profit charitable organisation run by volunteers.
Their purpose is to aid displaced children by providing the essentials needed most urgently, long before any arrangements have been made to further support them. For example, often children are placed quickly into foster or kinship care without much more than what they are wearing at the time.
Backpacks 4 VIC Kids provides displaced children with a few essential items to help resource them, restoring dignity, self-worth, and to show them someone cares. The packs contain size and gender appropriate contents including essential items such as toiletries, clothing, sleepwear, a torch, blanket and a toy or activity which will belong to the child, and will stay with them should they be relocated again.
