Stationery for School Children in Need

AJ Heijns and Tanja from The Hills Collective Ali and Jan, Founders of Stationery Aid.

Currently, Brisbane North is home to over 215 families—many with multiple children—who are in desperate need of stationery for the 2021 school year’s commencement. However, Stationery Aid, a new local not-for-profit organisation with a vision, plans to help resolve this issue, at least partially. 

After identifying the need to collect excess and used school stationery items in order to divert them from landfill, Stationery Aid began their mission to provide at least 100 stationery packs to disadvantaged students and families. These educational resources—inclusive of pens, pencils, staplers, glue, rulers, paints, math equipment, exercise books, etc.—will be sorted, cleaned, renewed, and then donated locally.  

Stationery Aid is presently conducting a pilot program in Brisbane North with the Hills Collective, Arana Hills—a team of volunteers, lead by AJ Heijns, who dedicate their time to helping our community. This year, the two organisations will measure what they receive and how much they can proudly donate to those in need. 

In the forefront of Stationery Aid’s vision is growing their social enterprise to hopefully annex all those who are lacking educational resources within our state and country. They are also in dire need of monetary donations to expand their not-for-profit organisation. So, if you are able to help contribute in any way, shape or form, please donate today at
