“Every child has a backpack – every backpack has a child.”
The United Way backpack campaign provides basic school supplies for underprivileged children in the Grey Bruce area. While providing school supplies helps children succeed academically, many teachers have emphasized how the program has helped remove bullying from the classroom.
To meet the needs for the area, our goal is to build 2,000 backpacks and any help and support is appreciated. An extensive amount of supplies is needed to help children in primary school to high school. Among the supplies is over 15,000 pencils, 11,000 pens, over 2,000 pencil cases, binders and rules among many others.
