Backpack & School Supplies

Links2Care helps Halton Hills JK to Grade 12 students go back to school fully equipped with supplies and confidence!

Not only does this program help lower-income students start off the school year on the right foot, parents’ financial and emotional stress is also alleviated as they avoid dipping into rent or food budgets to ensure their children have the tools they need to succeed.

For over a decade, Links2Care has provided hundreds of Halton Hills students with new backpacks filled with essential learning tools thanks to the generous support of local residents, groups and businesses and the dedicated help of volunteers.

Program will reopen next summer:

  • EMAIL with proof of income (recent notice of assessment) to Janet at [email protected] or Cathy at [email protected]
  • PICK-UP/DROP-OFF IN PERSON at our Acton or Georgetown offices.
  • Recipients will be contacted in late August with pick-up details.
