Backpacks for Success 2019

The 2019 Backpacks for Success Program raised over $23,000 and countless supplies for kids - right here at home. Over 1,379 backpacks filled with supplies have been donated to schools and programs across our community. 

Thank you to all who donated, volunteered, and supported the program in any way to make sure that children in Windsor-Essex County go back to school with the supplies they need to succeed. That's what we call showing your local love!

Below is a photo from our Backpacks & Brews event where over 700 backpacks were filled with supplies:
