It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start thinking about school, but in just a few short weeks, kids will be heading back to class with backpacks full of new school supplies. But for some families, going back to school means desperately trying to get necessary supplies that they don’t have the money to buy.
For the last eleven years, the Office Depot Foundation has been helping those children with its National Backpack Program. This incredible program provides sackpacks with some essential school supplies to children whose families are struggling financially. This year, 400,000 colourful new sackpacks will be distributed to organizations across North America. This year, sackpacks will be sent to Feed the Children, Speedway Children’s Charities, Food for the Poor and many other fantastic charities.
