1000 Backpacks Back To School Event
Every August City Care Dream Centre hosts their Back to School Event to help families who may be finding it challenging to provide all that their kids need for the new school year. Maple Leaf Foods provides a delicious barbecue meal and a "Nutritious Lunches" station to teach kids about making themselves healthy foods for lunch. Local hairdressers come out to provide hundreds of free kids haircuts,. There is free new and used clothing, manicures for mom, a kid’s activity area, produce hampers, and 1000 backpacks full of school supplies to give away. Details for the event will be posted on our Upcoming Events page by mid July each year.
