Thank You for Supporting Backpacks for Kids!

We asked for your help – and you delivered! 

This summer, we asked for support to send children back to school with all the tools they need to learn. By donating to Backpacks for Kids, you provided backpacks and other vital school supplies to children living on low income throughout Waterloo Region. 

What’s more, you gave the gift of dignity – allowing families to choose their own backpacks and buy their own supplies, just like you and I do. 

Because of your support, more than 500 children returned to school equipped and ready to learn! Thank you!
