Back-To-School Program

Our Back-to-School Program is dedicated to ensuring that every child has the chance to start the new school year with confidence and enthusiasm. We focus on supporting children from disadvantaged backgrounds, particularly new immigrants, and those from low-income families.

Through this program, we provide free school backpacks and essential school supplies to alleviate the financial burden on parents and caregivers. These backpacks are filled with notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, and other necessary items to equip students for a successful academic journey.

Our initiative is made possible through the generosity of our community, including individual donors, volunteers, and our nonprofit partner, Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA) who share the vision of promoting education equality. Together, we believe that education is a powerful tool for breaking down barriers and creating a brighter future for these children.

Year after year, we witness the positive impact of our program as we witness the joy and gratitude of children receiving their backpacks. Our goal is to empower these students with the tools they need to succeed, instilling in them the belief that education can be a transformative force in their lives.

Through the collective efforts of our caring community, we strive to make a lasting difference in the lives of these children and set them on a path toward a brighter and more promising future.
