Fill The Bus

Families in the community are preparing for back-to-school time, but many are struggling to secure the necessary supplies. Through our annual Fill the Bus event, you can help by donating school supplies to children in need at Rotholme Family Shelter.

You can shop for high-priority supplies at anytime between August 1st and September 30th, 2023. Help all children be prepared for a successful school year!

Some of these items include:

  • lined notebooks
  • gym shoes
  • lunch bags
  • reusable water bottles
  • snacks
  • child-sized face masks
  • grocery store gift cards
  • and much more

When you select an item to donate through the online catalogue, Rotholme Family Shelter will receive your donation to cover the cost of that item. We will then be able to purchase these items for the children who stay with us throughout the school year. For help with the catalogue’s check-out process, please refer to our step by step guide.

If you prefer, we are also able to accept donations in the form of cheques made payable to Mission Services of London and mailed to 4-797 York St., London, Ontario, N5W 6A8.

Thank you to all those who will Fill the Virtual Bus this year! The impact you will have is remarkable as children in need become prepared to thrive this school year.
