Give two local kids the best possible start in school by providing backpacks of basic school supplies.
Your gift gives each child a backpack full of pencils, paper and other essentials needed to learn to read and write. It also enables a child to carry lunch, books, supplies, and homework to and from school.
Your generous gift will be used to create the greatest possible impact in the community. Each gift in our guide directly relates to a United Way community investment. The dollar values associated are based on 2015 reporting. All donations made through the catalogue support programs in Calgary and area and are invested where they’re needed most.
