Guelph, Ontario
Recipient: Hope House   Initiative: Kits4Kids

Last week we completed the Kits for Kids backpack initiative at the ecclesia. 44 backpacks were filled with items for the Kindergarten to Grade 2 age group. Things like pencils, erasers, glue sticks, scissors, crayons, markers etc. were put in each bag. The packs were dropped off at HOPE House. They were already co-coordinating a backpack drive of their own and had 200 families on their waiting list. A heartfelt thank you to all who helped put smiles on the faces of some little ones in Guelph.

“Dear neighbours,

Thank you so much for your generous support of the backpack project here at HOPEHouse. You are making such a difference in the lives of children through this compassion.”
