For many students, school closures have disrupted more than learning. Being out of school can mean no breakfast or lunch and no access to learning supports.
Since schools across the Region closed in mid-March, the Halton Learning Foundation (HLF) has provided critical funding to more than 320 Halton District School Board students and their families. This is a 175% increase over last year at this time.
Donations to HLF are providing food and other necessities for daily life, as well as school supplies that are helping to ensure all kids can continue to learn.
