Helping child DV victims start school on the right foot
December 13, 2019
Child victims of domestic violence are getting a hand up ahead of the 2020 school year.
Zephyr Education has set up a donation box in the Cairns DFO shopping centre to make sure disadvantaged kids start the school year on the right foot. Zephyr helps supply a full booklist specific to the child’s year and school as well as a full uniform including shoes, socks, hats, backpacks and swimmers.
Customers are encouraged to support children living in domestic violence shelters by dropping new school supplies in the box.
DFO’s Rhianna Klemenc said “no one likes to feel ‘different’ or not good enough”.
“And that is where Zephyr is making a difference to family’s lives,” she said.
