Senior students participated in the 6th Annual Project Backpack campaign. This year, Yorkies gathered enough essential supplies to fill 95 backpacks.
Project Backpack provides homeless youth of Vancouver with backpacks containing essential items for survival on the street. The backpacks are filled with items to aid these marginalized youth during this desperate time in their lives. Project Backpack purchases, organizes and distributes the backpacks. Our students filled the sacks with donated items.
With the help of 6 Vancouver schools, the campaign will fill and donate 1000 backpacks this year.
