Empowering Education: The Salvation Army’s Backpacks for Kids Program

As the summer days dwindle and the anticipation of a new school year begins, children’s minds are filled with thoughts of new teachers, potential friends, and the excitement of recess games. Yet, for many children in Regina, these happy thoughts are overshadowed by worries about not having the essential supplies they need for school. At The Salvation Army, we believe that no child should start the school year unprepared. That’s why our Backpacks for Kids program is here to ensure every child has the tools they need to succeed.

A Helping Hand for Families in Need

The Backpack for Kids program is dedicated to supporting low-income families with children from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Each child registered in our program receives a brand-new backpack filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. This initiative not only equips children with the basics for their educational journey but also alleviates the financial burden on families struggling to make ends meet.

Registration for the program opens August 1, 2024 online. Space is limited.

The Impact of Your Support

Imagine the joy and relief a child feels when they receive a new backpack, packed with everything they need for school. This simple yet significant gesture can boost their confidence, enhance their learning experience, and ensure they are ready to embrace the new school year with enthusiasm. Your support plays a crucial role in making this possible.

A forty-dollar donation to The Salvation Army’s Backpack for Kids program can change a child’s school year. It covers the cost of a backpack and all essential supplies, ensuring that one more child in Regina starts school on equal footing with their peers.
