EMPOWERING . SUPPORTING . LOVING .
Treasure Boxes is an Adelaide-based Not for Profit (NFP) organisation that commenced operations in May 2015, borne from personal experiences working with Department for Child Protection (DCP) children who were removed and displaced from their families and placed into Emergency Care facilities, with many carrying complex trauma histories. Too often, and due to the nature of their removals, these children would arrive with little, if any clothing and no toys to provide comfort and distraction. As these children would generally be with DCP for an extended period of time, it was also very difficult to entertain them when minimal, if any, resources could be provided by other support organisations. It was also a huge struggle to cloth them suitably, with limited items available to us from the start and no provision for extra clothing in the near future. From there, we have become actively involved in assisting families fleeing from Domestic Violence situations, where many have left so urgently without any chance to gather up some of their own personal belongings.
Doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, doing what works
Our services are a lifeline for vulnerable children and their families. A donation to Treasure Boxes shows your kindness and your belief that every Australian child deserves an opportunity to build the best possible life.
Your contributions will be thoughtfully distributed to where it’s needed most. Whether it’s new shoes, a laptop for learning or a school formal suit for a kid who would otherwise not be able to attend his graduation.
We literally could not run our wonderful organisation without the love, care and dedication of our amazing volunteers. If you would like to join us whether it’s as an individual or a team building excersize, contact us.
Partnering with Treasure Boxes not only helps us achieve our goal of helping more families in need, it offers your Business the chance to have greater engagement with the work that we do via workplace volunteering, exposure to our large social media audience and to our growing community of supporters.
From weekend markets to big fundraising events, our team of dedicated volunteers are always popping up around SA to collect donations and spread the word.
