Care Packs 4 Kids is a Townsville Family Life Community Initiative,
one created when I saw many parents and children presenting to the Townsville University Hospital Emergency Department,
knowing in these circumstances taking along something to keep the kids distracted is the last thing on a parents’ mind.
Care Packs 4 Kids is an activity pack, made up of community donations,
items that can help make an uneasy situation a slightly less scary one, by providing that distraction for both child and parent.
This program is made possible with the support of locals:
– Brighter Lives Townsville Hospital Foundation
– Officeworks Hermit Park
– Rotary Club of Townsville Saints
Items we gratefully receive are
*Colouring or reading books
*Small toys (think trolls or hot wheels size)
You can drop off items at a local Donation Station:
Brighter Lives Townsville Hospital Foundation Volunteer Desk (at entry to Townsville University Hospital)
GymbaROO Townsville – during trading hours
Townsville Grammar North Shore Campus – during school term
Thank you to all who assist, support, donate towards and help me promote Care Packs 4 Kids!
