Operation: Backpack provides vital school supplies to thousands of kids who begin the school year without the proper essentials. Each September, Start2Finish, in cooperation with school boards and local administrators, identifies children with the greatest needs in low-income communities across the nation. The program equips students with the tools needed to help “even the playing field” and prepare them for a successful school year and beyond. The S2F Backpack Program distributes backpacks to the most at-risk children in schools nationwide.
1.3 million children in Canada live below the poverty line and can’t afford the most basic learning supplies. Your investment will provide a quality backpack filled with 3–6 months of vital tools for success.
