Congratulations to Rachael Zaltron OAM, founder of Backpacks 4 SA Kids, and recipient of our 2017 Impact100 SA $100,000 grant, who was recently recognised for her vision and efforts in supporting vulnerable children, families experiencing domestic violence, and young people experiencing homelessness across South Australia, by providing backpacks and homestarter kits filled with essential supplies.

Rachael was already a hero in our eyes but now has been named as SA Local Hero in the 2024 Australian of the Year Awards for SA. Well done Rachael and everyone at Backpacks 4 SA Kids, visit their website for more information or to volunteer or donate!
