Remember the excitement of heading back to school? The nerves on the first day? New friends, new teachers, new school! And of course, back to school shopping for new clothes and new school supplies!
Every September, thoughtful and generous members of our community make sure young people head back to school with all they need to get the school year started right.
This year, our assistance is focused exclusively on youth in grades 9-12 because of a lack of support for this age group. The needs of youth are often overlooked and you can make sure that doesn't happen this fall.
We have 150 youth who need your help to get ready for the school year.
Youth like Jamie entering grade 10 and who loves robotics and science. Or Kendra in grade 12, studying hard in preparation for university next year. And Mikayla and Michael, who are not only transitioning to grade 9, but also to a new life here.
You can help make back to school a little easier (and a little more exciting) for each of them and the 146 other youth we will assist.
Just $50 provides a good quality backpack and a $25 gift certificate to a youth in need so they can do their own back to school shopping and be ready for the first day! For the price of a daily coffee you can help a youth look forward to the first day back and be ready to succeed.
Thank you for your kindness and for helping us build a caring community where youth have what they need to learn, grow and thrive!
