Callie's Backpacks

This winter season we would like to help our friend Callie help the homeless.  Callie is a friend of ours that used to come to this school. When Callie was in grade 5, she learned of how there are many people living on our streets with nothing at all, so she created Callie’s Backpacks.

Callie collects backpacks and many different items that people need to survive and feel comfortable. Once she has collected the items, she distributes them to people in need. So far she has handed out over 200 backpacks, but there is still a need for more.

When you and your family come to the winter concert, please bring some items that will help fill the backpacks. Here are some items that would be helpful.

·     Backpack
·     Blankets
·     Warm socks
·     Mitts
·     Scarves
·     Hats
·     Deodorant
·     Toothpaste
·     Toothbrush
·     Soap
·     Packaged Snacks
·     Lip gloss
·     Travel size hand cream
·     Travel Mugs

We will put boxes outside the office for collection during the week, and at the doors of the gym during the winter concert.

Thank you for your support!
