We are changing up things for our Southview Kids Fall Serve Project and are supporting local organizations by packing and donating backpacks for new immigrant children to Calgary. This event, on November 29, is for all families. All supplies to put in the backpacks will be provided.
We just ask that you bring the backpack for the age group of child you wish to donate to. Please no sling bags.
This event is free for all families who bring a backpack to fill.
We will be accepting donations for this event! A list of approved supplies from the Calgary Board of Education will be at our Kids Check-in area. Please drop off you donations by Sunday, November 26.
The Backpacks for Kids Program is an annual campaign where organizations and individuals donate backpacks filled with a variety of school supplies for children whose families might not otherwise be able to provide the supplies that their children need for the beginning of school.
