Back to School Supplies Drive 2023
In the blink of an eye, summer vacation is over and school is just around the corner. Going back to school should be an exciting time for kids, but the experience for children from low-income families may be just the opposite. Purchasing school supplies isn’t a luxury all families can afford. Sadly, it can bring embarrassment and can often affect a child’s school participation and academic achievement. Though the act of receiving new school supplies may seem small, the impact is enormous.
We need to have all donations of NEW items in-house no later than Friday August 11th so we can pack them up for distribution to families in need beginning August 14th. You can drop off NEW items or Walmart/Staples Gift Cards to The Compass at 427 Lakeshore Road East, Mississauga at the back receiving doors during our business hours. Please do not leave items in the outside donation bin.
Last year with your help we provided school supplies to 310 children in need. Our numbers this year indicates that the need is to fill 400 knapsacks. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jaclyn@thecompass.ca.
