Urgent Help Needed to Provide School Essentials… and Dignity!

| September 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

For hundreds of low income families in Ottawa, back-to-school season is a difficult and expensive time of year… They may find themselves in a time of need due to unforeseen circumstances such as job layoffs, sickness or accidents. Poverty has a negative and stressful impact on children’s well-being and learning,

Caring and Sharing is a non-profit organization in Ottawa that has been working all summer to ensure that these children have the school essentials they need next week. The Sharing in Student Success program provides low-income families with a redeemable gift-voucher to Giant Tiger, giving parents the dignity to buy items such as backpacks, lunchboxes, shoes, basic school supplies or even snacks.
