Because every child deserves a good start to the school year
The FRRR Back to School Gift Voucher Program is coordinated nationally by the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, delivered locally by Border Trust and supported locally by Hume Bank.
The program provides valuable assistance for local families in need by distributing $50 Target and Kmart Gift Vouchers to support with the purchase of school supplies. We work directly with schools to ensure the vouchers go to students and families experiencing disadvantage across our cross-border region of Albury, Federation and Greater Hume (NSW) with Indigo, Towong and Wodonga (VIC).
The vouchers are allocated to schools by Border Trust for distribution at the discretion of each school and to assist families with the purchase of uniforms, books, footwear, stationary, toiletries or other school necessities.
This small gift aims to help students start the school year happy, confident and with the resources they need. Donations to the Back-to-School Program stay 100% local, are tax deductible and can be made all year round.
