Supporting Kids in Need

For the second year running, Northline has put its support behind two Australian charities that contribute to the care, wellbeing and safety of children and young people.

Northline has provided free transportation services to Backpacks 4 SA Kids and Pinchapoo.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids provides backpacks to relieve some of the stress and anxiety children face when they’re removed from their family for their wellbeing, often in traumatic situations.

The backpacks contain age appropriate emergency clothing, toiletries and other necessary supplies (such as nappies, bottles and cuddle toys) for children aged 0-16 years who are taken into care as a result of neglect or abuse, or who need to quickly leave their homes due to family violence, or who are experiencing homelessness.

Pinchapoo, which was founded by Kate Austin, redistributes hotel toiletry products (mini-shampoos, soaps etc) which have been donated to them intact by hotel guests.

The products are redistributed to thousands of disadvantaged men, women and children nationally each year.

Formed 12-years-ago, Pinchapoo is now the biggest national not-for-profit supplier of personal hygiene essentials and works with over 600 + leading organisations including Northline.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids founder Rachael Zaltron said this partnership alone will save them around $20,000 per year and as a result allow them to support an additional 250 kids with these funds!
