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 is the amount of bags donated through Hope For Our Children since 2016.

Sponsor a Backpack

Can’t get to the shops but would love to donate?!!! The average bag full of love costs between $100 – $200 but your $50 would kick-start the bag & some necessities purchased!
