Annual Giving Day 

10th June 2021

Annual Giving Day is about: 

  • helping those less fortunate and often forgotten

  • celebrating the spirit of our community and the values of B4VK – Inclusion, Compassion, Fairness

  • Showcasing how the great work of charity and business can make a difference in lives of vulnerable children and young people 


Backpacks for Vic Kids (B4VK) is a 100% local, 96% volunteer run Victorian charity.


This makes us different, and means that your donation goes directly to local children in out-of-home care who deserve to have essentials items such as pyjamas and underwear, toiletries, a blanket, school supplies. Things that most of us take for granted.


In order to meet the urgent need and provide vital material aid through our main programs to at least 8,000 vulnerable children and young people, who cannot live with their parents for reasons of safety or family crisis, WE NEED YOUR HELP! 


If there was ever a time to join us in helping vulnerable local children, it is now. 

$35 Could provide equal access to quality school shoes 

$50 Could strengthen engagement in education with new school supplies

$65 Could make children often forgotten smile at Christmas time

$75 Could provide dignity and self-worth with a pack of essential items such as toiletries, clothing, sleepwear, a torch, blanket and a toy  


All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Thank you for trust and support!
