The Good Backpack Program
Backpacks are available to students in publicly funded schools in Hastings and Prince Edward counties.
Backpacks are provided through quiet, confidential application made on behalf of students by school staff. Link to the form for school staff to complete.
There is no registration fee, and backpacks are requested for students identified by school staff as needing support, and who otherwise wouldn’t have access to a backpack and supplies.
Funds are raised for the program through sponsorship, community donations and the ‘Stuff the Bus’, and ‘Cram the Cruise’ events.
The number of backpacks available through The Foundation is dependent upon the amount of funds raised annually to support the campaign.
