Backpack Program

About The Program

Registration Info

Each year, our Backpack Program ensures children from less advantaged backgrounds going into junior kindergarten through Grade 12, enjoy a smooth transition into the coming school year by providing backpacks filled with supplies.

Our goal is to provide each child with a quality backpack filled with grade level appropriate items… binders, refill paper, scribblers, report covers, pencil crayons, pens, pencils, rulers, and the list goes on.

This program is made possible through the many kind donors in the community who provide donations of new backpacks and supplies. As well, we could not do this without our loyal volunteers who help package and distribute the backpacks.
