About Us

 
 
Our mandate is to provide children with the essentials required for school, trusting that this will assist in increasing the child’s self-esteem as well as create a positive experience towards returning each year.

We sponsor children that will benefit from our program, chosen directly by the schools based on their knowledge of the child’s needs and situations.

Confidentiality is a priority for us. Once a child is chosen, volunteers shop with care customizing each backpack. Volunteers then sort and deliver these backpacks to students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 in North Bay and surrounding areas serving both the English Public and the Separate School Boards.

Together we can make a difference!

Each year we would like to increase our backpack numbers and
the only way we can do this is with your help!
