Blue Connections IT, together with the assistance of our key vendors and distributors, rolled up their sleeves to provide 205 completed backpacks to Backpacks 4 VIC Kids. The eager team all purchased a pair of children’s pyjamas, donated their time to assist packing other essential items into the backpacks and then detailed the inclusions with a personalised message for each child.
B4VK provides crisis packs and gift packs to vulnerable children, aged from birth to seventeen years. 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. Often children are placed quickly into foster or kinship care, for example, without much more than what they are wearing at the time. B4VK provides displaced children with a few essential items to help resource them, restoring dignity, self-worth, and to show them someone cares.
