Sometimes the best motivation for going back to school as a kid was knowing that you were getting some new things. A new backpack, lunch bag and other supplies like pencils, crayons and notebooks can help make that transition more bearable. But what about those with budgets that are stretched to the max? It can be hard for some of our neighbours in need to purchase these items when struggling with other priorities.
In the past, our Back to School Supplies Campaign has been met with generosity from community members and groups wanting to ease the burden for our families. If you are able to pick up some school supplies to donate, or know someone who can, we appreciate it on behalf of our clients. Back to school items will be distributed in September and throughout the school year. Drop off items at Rotholme, Women’s & Family Shelter, 42 Stanley Street (Tel: 519-673-4114).
