Donate children's shoes to help underprivileged kids in Cairns get back to school
Local schools say not having school shoes is the number one reason for non-attendance
This community organisation supports disadvantaged locals across Far North Queensland. Each year the organisation runs a back-to-school initiative in the form of a pop-up shop offering free school supplies and uniforms to people in need. In 2020 the initiative helped more than 1000 families and 2000 children get back to school, but ran out of school shoes to distribute early on in the program.
During consultation with schools across the region, not having shoes was identified as being the primary reason for non-attendance at school.
Thank you GIVIT Family, you are amazing!
Thanks to your amazing generosity, you have helped provide over 30 new pairs of boy's and girl's school shoes and runners to primary and high school-aged children. These families are so grateful for your support!
