School just finished, but we are already thinking about the next school year.
Every August, we give out backpacks full of school supplies to elementary school aged children in need. Last year we gave away 341 backpacks! We are having a school supply drive in July to get ready for the backpack giveaway in August.
These are the most needed items:
- Red, blue and black pens
- Pencil crayons
- Glue sticks
- Pencil sharpeners
- Children’s safety scissors
- Lined paper
School supplies can be dropped off at the Mission Centre (22 Fifth Street, Welland) during open hours before July 24. Thanks for helping kids in our community!
