Kelowna Back to School Program

Donate to Kelowna Back to School Program!


About the program

Our Backpack Program provides vital school supplies to over 150 children and youth who begin the school year without the proper essentials.  Each September,  in cooperation with donor support we are able to run our backtoschool program for children and youth.  For most of us, getting ready to go back to school is an exciting time. We get new clothes, new shoes, and new school supplies. Unfortunately for many children in the province of B.C and here in the Okanagan, this is not their experience. Sometimes children are lucky if they have an older sibling who may pass down the supplies from the year before. If not, some children have to go without backpacks and school supplies. Here at Mamas for Mamas this is definitely not an option. Donate today and help to ensure no child gets left behind.

  • Binders (5 * zip binders)

Support a Family this Christmas!


Hymers Private Wealth of RBC Dominion Securities is the proud Platinum Partner for the organization’s 2021 Christmas Hamper Program.

The holiday spirit is about giving and spreading joy throughout the communities in which we live and serve. In 2020, we distributed over 6,000 Christmas hampers to families in Canada and over 2,500 in the Okanagan alone! This year we have had an exponential increase in the number of families who need our support. We are faced with an enormous challenge this year, and with your help, you can provide a heart-warming outcome and a little magic this time of year.

Christmas can be the most stressful and challenging time of the year for many. The knowledge that someone has thought about them this Christmas, that they are not alone, can lift the spirits of so many caregivers and children. This year you can donate to a family in need or sponsor a family directly in our community.
