Urgent Clothing call out from Kickstart for Kids
Help clothe kids for Camp Kickstart Sept/Oct School Holiday Program
KickStart For Kids are calling for donations of clothing for their upcoming Camp KickStart September-October school holiday program.
Camp KickStart is a school holiday care program for vulnerable and disadvantaged children aged five to thirteen who don’t look forward to the holidays like their peers do as they are experiencing hardship.
The children attending Camp KickStart are desperate for good quality clothes, particularly socks, underwear, long sleeve t-shirts, hoodies and other basic articles of clothing that are often taken for granted. These clothes do not have to be expensive and can cost as little as $5 from Kmart or Target.
Clothes can be donated to the KickStart for Kids new headquarters which is located across from the Glenelg Golf Club.
Every school holidays over 350 kids attend the camps across five South Australian locations. They provide kids with transport to and from home and excursions with food, books, clothes and fun things to do as well as partnering them with a mentor for extra support and self-esteem building.
KickStart For Kids CEO, Ian Steel, founded the organisation after mentoring primary school children in lower SES (socio-economic status).
“Our Camp KickStart school holiday camps rely on the generous contributions made by businesses, organisations, and individuals in the South Australian community. It’s up to all of us to do what we can to help improve the lives of children in our state.”
