2022 Back to School Backpack & Shoe  Campaign


How to donate? It's easy! We'll come to you. 


We are looking for the following items and will have a Volunteer Driver come and pick up your donations at your doorstep!


Shoes/running shoes (kids and adult sizes)

New school supplies: pencils, pens, crayons, coloured pencils, markers, lined paper, duo-tangs, binders, binder dividers, lined notebooks, metric rulers, children’s scissors, pencil erasers, geometry sets, calculators, glue sticks, and highlighters.

*Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we ask donors to leave their donations on the porch for contactless pickup. If you live in an apartment complex we will give you a call when we arrive.

We will reach out to you via email within 1week and will coordinate a time with you on when we can come to pick up your donation. 

What are you donating?

Your generous donation will help a child this coming school year.
