Sending 2000 kids in need to school with backpacks full of supplies.
Every September, single-parent and low-income families struggle to equip their children for a new school year. The Salvation Army supports these families by distributing donated school supplies. To handle the increased demand, from August 1st to September 15th, all Lower Mainland Fitness Town, Staples and downtown Vancouver Starbucks locations collect donations, back packs and school supplies for children in need, through The Salvation Army.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Bring donations of backpacks and school supplies to any Fitness Town location in B.C. – there are 7 to choose from. A webpage on Fitness Town will be updated throughout the program: www.fitnesstown.ca/supplies
