Back to School

Fundraiser Timeline: Now – the end of August

Approximately 22% of children in Canada, living with a single mother, were in low income in 2009. 31% of children in poverty lived in a lone-parent family headed by a woman. That’s 196,000 kids who cannot receive all of their needs and wants, including materials for school. Living in poverty makes it difficult for our clients to provide the necessary items for their children returning to class.

Back to School is a program that gives the children of our registered mothers, under the age of 18, the opportunity to return to school with all the school supplies they need. Our organization puts together backpack kits for these children. We accept donations of:

  • School supplies (ex. Backpacks, lunch bags, binders, lined paper, pencils, pens, calculators, etc.)
  • Gift cards
  • Monetary Donations

Your donation will provide a child with supplies for a backpack kit so they can be successful in school. Your support will give some of those 196,000 kids the opportunity to do better in school and achieve a better lifestyle. With your help, we can make the community a better place for all those mothers who need a helping hand.

Note: All donations over the amount of $20 will receive a tax receipt
