Kids in Western Australia's remote Pilbara region are doing it tough and need your help
Not sure how to donate to domestic violence? WA children impacted by domestic and family violence need donations of food vouchers, lunchboxes and plenty more
This organisation in Port Hedland provides immediate support and assistance to families experiencing domestic and family violence. The majority of the affected children supported by this organisation are Indigenous.
Many families who escape domestic abuse situations leave in a hurry without personal possessions. As they start afresh, back to school supplies are often a long way down the list of essential items.
School is a great distraction for children who have experienced domestic and family violence. Having all the things they need means they feel comfortable and fit in at school, which means they have one less thing to worry about.
Charitable donations of all kinds of new back to school items are needed. This includes:
- $50 food and grocery vouchers to ensure kids have healthy and nutritious school lunches;
- Insulated lunchboxes and drink bottles (available to fund for $10 each);
- Hand sanitizer and tissues;
- Hats (available to fund for $10 each);
- Book list items and stationery including exercise books, pens, pencils, ruler, calculators, erasers, staplers and glue;
- School shoes and sports shoes (kids sizes 1-14);
- School bags (available to fund for $20 each); and
- School uniforms (cash donations preferred)
Look out for our new 'FUND' button to donate the money for GIVIT to buy exactly what is needed. $10 will buy a hat or a lunchbox, or a $20 donation buys a child a school bag.
100% of the money received by GIVIT for this project will be used to purchase school supplies for WA kids who have been impacted by domestic and family violence. To donate, simply click the link, then write 'Kids in remote WA need school lunches' in the comments section.

Donations of seemingly basic items can make a big difference to people who are struggling. Here's how a washing machine, a boxing bag, kids bikes, a grocery voucher and a booster seat helped people impacted by domestic and family violence.
