BACKPACKS FOR YOUTH
providing backpacks to children and youth in our community
Did you know that children and youth represent over one-third (34.7%) of low-income persons in Simcoe County?
There were 53,580 people living in low-income households in 2015, of whom 18,585 were children and youth.
We need your financial help purchasing backpacks and school supplies, or through donation of items. The support from our community is vital to making this a success.
