By the time Sydneysider, Poppy Littlewood was 6 years old she had an uncommonly mature understanding of the world around her. Particularly, when it came to the large homeless community she was exposed to whilst growing up in Inner Sydney. Five years later, and a now 10-year-old Poppy is running a small charity with her family, dedicated to providing the disadvantaged of Sydney with a little more care.
Little Care Packs started small, with the Littlewoods buying a few extra hygiene products on their shopping runs, which turned into weekends spent dropping off bags of essentials all over Sydney. Now, five years later the charity has amassed partnerships with Novotel Sydney, Pact Group, and Garnier Australia. Poppy and her family now run the charity from their home with the help of fundraisers, working bees, and donations, putting together thousands of Little Care Packs full of toothbrushes, soap, deodorant, shampoos and other hygiene products, which are then distributed to homeless shelters and individuals all across Sydney.
Little Care Packs now needs volunteers to help with their next fundraiser.
Little Care Packs will be hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, September 8 and they need 25 people to volunteer at least two hours between 9 am and 4 pm. Little Care Packs teams will be hosting a BBQ at Bunnings in Alexandria to raise funds for their next round of Little Care Packs.
