Santa Sacks for Backpacks4Kids
After a quick dinner (thank you Corinne) all Club members were able
to lend a hand in a production line completing Santa sacks. These Santa
sacks will be used by Backpacks 4 VIC Kids when they distribute Christmas
gifts to children in out-of-home care. Last year they required 4000 Santa
sacks, so it is a great idea to be working on this early in the year. It was
wonderful to be joined by DG Alma too..

complete, irreversible loss of vision..

children who are escaping abusive relation-ships • Taking part in
