The Adelaide Crows Foundation and AFLW co-major partner, BHP, have teamed up with South Australian charity Treasure Boxes to deliver much needed support to regional South Australian families.
Treasure Boxes provides essentials such as cots, clothing, toys, nappies, car seats and other nursery equipment for infants and families who would otherwise not have access to these vital items.
The establishment of the inaugural Regional Program will see over 500 boxes filled with clothes, toys and books supplied to children in regional areas across South Australia, in particular Indigenous communities in and around Port Augusta, Port Pirie and Whyalla, cementing BHP’s commitment to the region.
BHP Olympic Dam Indigenous Affairs Lead Travis Cooper said the program will have a real impact on the lives of the recipients.
“We know there are many people out there doing it tough, especially in Indigenous communities in and around the Upper Spencer Gulf area,” Cooper said.
“We hope these treasure boxes make things a little easier for families in need.”
Adelaide Crows Foundation Manager Louise McDonald said this partnership is a great example of South Australian organisations coming together to support children and families in need.
“Every child deserves to have access to these essential items, whether it is a teddy to cuddle at night, a jumper to stay warm or a book to inspire their imagination,” McDonald said
“These treasure boxes will mean so much to their recipients and we are proud to be partnering with another South Australian organisation who is making such an incredible impact.”
“This partnership wouldn’t be possible without BHP’s support and we thank them for their commitment to this partnership.”
