Links2Care’s annual Backpack Program provides new backpacks filled with school supplies to students from lower income families living in Halton Hills. Last year 200 backpacks were provided to students whose families really appreciated receiving this assistance.
This program has also been a fabulous example of “kids helping kids” as local high school students gain their volunteer hours working with adult mentors to organize and run fundraising events, promote the program, shop for supplies, and pack backpacks for students.
If you think your family could benefit from this program, click on the link below to download an application and return it to one of our offices at 360 Guelph Street, Georgetown, and 47 Mill Street East (use John Street entrance), Acton by August 10, 2018. Application forms are also available at the Georgetown Bread Basket, Acton Foodshare and the Acton Hub.
We welcome and appreciate donations – financial or new school supplies – at either of our Georgetown or Acton offices. Financial donations are also accepted online.
For more information about this program please call Cathy at 519-853-3310 ext.223.
