Throughout the year, we work closely with support agencies throughout South Australia to best understand what practical items will offer the most impact to the families who receive them.
Sometimes these items are essential items like warm clothes, pyjamas or new underwear and sometimes, they're gestures of kindness and generosity including hand creams, colouring in parcels or books.
We run a variety of campaigns throughout the year and welcome your contributions via our network of drop-off locations.
October 2018 – April 2019
The SA Pantry campaign aims to help fulfil one of the most re-occurring requirements, and most common requests of disadvantaged families in SA – food. With the support of our skilled team, we have designed special pantry-packs that will be jam-packed with non-perishable food items. Each pantry pack will include a variety of high-quality and immediately useful foods from which recipients can easily make a variety of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and drinks for the whole family. The packs will also include recipes that are being specially designed for these families, providing quality, variety and inspiration.Get involved

For many disadvantaged South Aussies, access to good personal care can be near-impossible. Add to this exposure to the extremities of a South Australian Summer and potentially a lack of shade, shelter and hydration and risks to basic core health become very real, particularly for those facing homelessness.Read more

Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday 14 May 2017... Mums across the country will be lavished with gifts and have a delicious breakfast presented to them, or a nice home-cooked dinner in the evening. But….. too many Mum’s, will go entirely without reward, or celebration & certainly they’ll go without a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal. Some families don’t & cannot produce home-cooked food because they simply don’t have the essentials to do so; they don’t have chopping boards, wooden spoons and mixing bowls etc.Read more

Reading books is one of the most crucial of ingredients to anyone’s childhood, starting from the second they’re born. It’s part of every child’s night-time routine, or so it should be. Books are not a luxury, they’re a necessity, but kids around us go without these amazing tools. Some children don’t touch their first book until they arrive at school, aged five!Read more
