Give the Gift of Reading


The City of Norwood Payneham & Peters is again partnering with Backpacks 4 SA Kids to bring joy to the lives of children in need this Christmas.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids aims to provide a backpack full of useful items that children faced with a new home environment, from newborn babies through to young adults, can call their own, providing reassurance and comfort from their changing worlds.

The public are encouraged to participate by purchasing a new book, colouring or activity pack for a child or young adult and leaving it under the Christmas tree at any of the Council’s Libraries or the Council Offices at the Norwood Town Hall. All of the donated books and packs will be distributed to a child as part of the Backpacks 4 SA Kids Program.

The Council will be collecting donations for the Give the Gift of Reading until 24 December 2017.
