I hope that your year is off to a great start. It’s back to school time and I think 99% of the mums out there are thankful it’s finally arrived – Haha
This February, the Rigters Group are fortunate enough to be a part of the Dandelions WA Back to School Project.
This project was created to help less fortunate children get essential school supplies for the busy year ahead. Established in 2020, this is Dandelions WA’s third Back to School campaign and each year the demand for these backpacks has unfortunately increased dramatically.
The cost of each primary school backpack is $50, which includes: The back pack, pencil case and all stationery needs, a library bag, lunch box, hat and water bottle. All of which are provided new. In 2023, the total number of backpacks distributed in WA was an amazing 6795!
As part of our continual support for local community groups and organisations, this year the Rigters Group was able to donate 140 of these school backpacks (over $5000 worth) to our local primary schools including Allendale, Beachlands, Bluff Point and Mt Tarcoola.
t’s certainly a great feeling to be a part of something that improves the lives of families within our community, especially younger kids.
A big thanks again to our staff and customers for your continued support of the Rigters Group, as without it we cannot commit to these well needed projects.
If you’d like to find out more or perhaps assist this worthy cause, please contact Dandelions WA at: DANDELIONSWA.ORG.AU or ADMIN@DANDELIONSWA.ORG.AU
