United Way Backpack Drive


Hope you are all having an amazing summer. I know we don’t want to yet think about fall, but here at United Way we are getting ready for back to school with our GenNext ‘Best First Day’ Backpack Drive. Every year the need grows and this year is no different. We have had a request to support the children from the First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) schools in our area this impacts approximately 350 kids, but this is an all or nothing situation and the need is staggering. We need to collect an extra 350 backpacks- can you help us make this the ‘best first Day ever’?

Please let me know if you are able to help with collecting backpacks and school supplies. For more information, posters, how-to guides, and items we are collecting, please visit: http://unitedwaylm.ca/gennext/backpack-drive/

Thank you for considering helping out.
