Back Pack Program
Back - to - School Back Pack Program
Each August, before the children start a new year at school, we like to start them off with supplies and learning tools. This is a luxury that many children in low-income families could not otherwise enjoy.
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 LIFE*SPIN Backpack Program distributes backpacks to at-risk children before the school year begins, so they start the year off right.
We trade each backpack for that child's drawing, a poem, or a story about poverty or racism in London, and what we should be doing to address it.
With the amazing support of volunteers and donors, we provided back-packs to 300 children last year.
Donations are now being accepted at LIFE*SPIN for distribution at the end of August. We are looking for:
Reusable Lunch Containers
Pens/ pencils/ Erasers
Thank you to Mayor Matt Brown will join us again this year to help with the distribution~ the children love meeting our mayor.
