This project was funded on 10 Jun 2022!

A van will help support more families in our community as it will give us the chance to collect donations and deliver referrals to ensure families get their much needed items . We currently distribute up to 160 bundles per month of essential items to help keep babies and children safe, happy and healthy. We gift bundles of clothing, nappies, toiletries, toys, beds, prams and much more to families experiencing poverty and hardship.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will purchase a van
  • We will collect donations from our community
  • We will help deliver referrals to families

Why it's a great idea:

We often miss out on much needed donations when donors are unable to deliver the items to our warehouse. A van will enable us to get out in our community and collect donations of pre-loved baby items, giving them a new lease of life and saving them from landfill We have the team and resources in place to action referrals quickly, often the same day, however referrals can be sat in our warehouse for weeks waiting to go out to a family. A van will speed this up and help us deliver referrals to families quickly so no child is going without.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchasing a van
  • Recruit volunteer drivers
