Backpack Drive


We at HFOC love giving the gift of a bag filled with goodies to children recently removed or facing a transition. Our backpacks are distributed through the different foster care providers in our region or through the Department of Child Safety in the Toowoomba area. Here are the amount of bags donated through Hope For Our Children since 2016.

Backpacks donated to date: 1135
