These community based drives gather goods and donations to support our most vulnerable members. The backpack drive ensures that every child in our schools has the materials they need to be successful in their learning throughout the year ahead, and a good quality backpack to carry them in.
The coat drive collects warm winter coats, hats, and gloves which are distributed to community members on request, ensuring that everyone is safe throughout the cold weather of our harsh northern winters.
While we have specific periods for collection – end of summer for the Backpack drive and late autumn for the coat drive – we accept monetary donations to support these efforts at any time of year. You can find more info about both on our websites dedicated to these drives:
