Looking for a gift for that special educator? We are proud to announce our Teacher Thank You Campaign.

Thank you special educator by sponsoring a backpack in their name.

Looking for an end of year gift for that special educator?  Lucky for you, today is the United Way Day of Action and we are proud to announce our Teacher Thank You Campaign.  You can participate by donating $20 to sponsor each fully stocked backpack in honour of your special educator.

To make a secure online donation, simply visit Canada Helps at www.ThankAnEducator.ca, give us a call at 519-376-1560 or stop by our office at 380 9th Street East in Owen Sound.

We can send your educator an e-mail to let them know that a donation has been made in their honour or we can send you a certificate by e-mail to print off and share with them.  Don’t have a printer?  If you come into our office, we are happy to supply you with the certificate.

Since 2005, the Backpack Program has been reducing classroom bullying because each child starts school with the proper supplies, just like their classmates.  To date, we have distributed over 23,000 backpacks across Bruce and Grey Counties to low income children.  These children are able to go to school stress free and with smiles on their faces, thanks to people like you.

We look forward to hearing from you!

To access the Backpack Program, simply call 211.

Through your support, you will make a difference in the life of a child.
