Christmas Drive – Backpacks 4 SA Kids | Nov & Dec 2019

Christmas Drive supporting Backpacks 4 SA Kids

In just a week 2932 Christmas presents have been requested from the agencies seeking support this Christmas from Backpacks for SA Kids and the requests are still coming.

Imagine as a teenager having never received a present before, then imagine receiving your very first gift and the joy you would feel. The teenagers are their highest demand area for presents, but the lowest supplied gifts. They need your help to find their smiles again.

The highest demand area for Christmas presents so far are within the 10-18 year age group and as we all know they are also the hardest to buy for, so Backpacks for SA Kids have provided some suggestions below:

  • Board Games
  • Remote control car
  • Sporting equipment
  • Science kits
  • Vouchers ie: Ultimate teen voucher, movie vouchers
  • Craft
  • Face masks, nail polish
  • Purse, wallet, watches

No weapon or food orientated items and please don’t include books or soft toys as they already have them in their backpacks. Maximum $30 per gift and must be brand new and unwrapped. 

The Christmas Program began at the beginning of November, with BankSA branches and three Anytime Fitness clubs joining the drop-off locations, accepting unwrapped gifts for children who are displaced from home over the Christmas period.

All drop off points are listed on the webpage HERE including Bank SA branches.

You can also donate funds if you don’t have time to shop for a donation:

If you prefer to purchase toys online, you can have them sent directly to their admin address:
