don't leave them out in the cold
Brighten a kids' winter.
On any given cold, winter night in South Australia over 22,500 babies and kids are living below the poverty line. Struggling parents are unable to keep the heater running when the temperature is low or buy a warm winter blanket for their newborn baby.
Treasure Boxes is here to ensure these families have the childhood essentials they need. We provide them with warm clothing, winter bedding and nursery equipment to keep their little ones safe and sound. We reduce the distress and financial hardship experienced when a parent has to choose between buying food or a blanket for their children, allowing them comfort and breathing space to focus on getting through a difficult time.
In 2020 Treasure Boxes provided support to 1,507 South Australian children – 40% of those escaping an unsafe family home.
Can you help brighten winter for kids in need?
Your donation ensures SA families can receive the vital essentials they need, not only to keep warm in winter, but to help rebuild their lives.
Donations above $2 are tax deductible.
We help people like Mary*, a single mother with 4 kids under the age of 10. With one newborn in a neonatal unit she was also dealing with the stress of unemployment and poverty, and desperately needed help.
Treasure Boxes provided her with warm clothes for the kids, winter bedding and nursery items to help her get set up for when her baby came home. Now Mary can focus on the joys of raising a newborn, knowing her young ones have a warm bed to sleep in on cold winter nights.
