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.
