Backpacks for Kids

You can help send a child to school with everything she needs to succeed!

Every year, more than 500 families in Waterloo Region struggle to provide their children with the basic supplies they need for school, including backpacks.

And when summer holidays begin, these families are already worrying about the fall and how they will find the money they need to send their children back to school ready and equipped to learn.

You can help!

By donating today, you can provide the gift of choice and dignity to families by helping them purchase the school supplies and backpacks that their children need.

YES, I care! I believe that every parent deserves the dignity that comes with being able to purchase school supplies for their own child!

PLEASE NOTE: While many community members have donated backpacks and supplies in the past, we ask that you carefully consider a financial donation instead so that families will have the gift of dignity and choice, purchasing the items that best meet their needs.
