ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

When poverty, homelessness and domestic violence create an uncertain, sometimes dangerous home environment, many South Australian families struggle to provide their kids with the essentials of life; bedding, clothes, toys, even regular meals.

From this troubling reality, Treasure Boxes came to be – a team of caring, like-minded people, dedicated to preventing hardship and trauma by providing kids in need with critical items many of us take for granted. From our bustling warehouse headquarters, Treasure Boxes arranges the donation, collection and delivery of those childhood essentials, including cots, prams, highchairs and clothes. Driven by this profound purpose, our friendly, professional organisation seeks to empower others, creating positive change within the community – at the same time ensuring valuable, high quality resources don’t go to waste.

Agile and innovative, we’re unburdened by formalities and conventions. And like our team of volunteers and the children we advocate passionately for, our kind donors feel valued and included as together, we ‘give back’ in practical, life-changing ways, helping those with, help those without.

WHAT WE DO

Every baby, child and parent deserves to have access to good quality nursery equipment and essential items, to allow them to thrive and help keep them safe during times of severe disadvantage.

Treasure Boxes opened in May 2015 and is a South Australian based not-for-profit children’s charity. We provide vital essentials to newborns, babies and children living in disadvantage within our community.

Through gifting essential children’s goods to families at risk of poverty, homelessness and domestic violence, we alleviate severe hardship, financial burden, reduce the risk of poverty and homelessness, ease trauma and provide hope to those most vulnerable.

We are an environmentally conscious organisation that actively promotes sustainability ensuring valuable, high-quality resources don’t go to waste.
