Guelph Community Backpack Project 2023

One of the best poverty fighting tools is a full education, one free of disparities and inequalities. This year we are proud to be a sponsor for the Guelph Community Backpack project. This program is lead by Hope House who partners with the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition, the Salvation Arm, the Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington, and the YMCA. This year, our team was able to join other volunteers to pack pencil cases for all different ages.

Guelph Community Backpack Project

We are pleased to be a sponsor of the 2021 Guelph Community Backpack Project. We believe in our children's future education. By owning something brand new, the kids feel that they matter, that they are valued and that they have not been overlooked or forgotten. This program is a great way to boost their confidence as they continue on their education journey. Thank you HOPE House, Salvation Army and Guelph Neighborhood Support Coalition for leading and coordinating such an important program.

Our Community, Stronger Together!

The last week of April 2020, our team organized a community food drive to collect food items for the Guelph Community Food Bank. In the height of the pandemic, we realized that there were people in our community that were struggling and we decided to put together a simple plan for a complex problem. The food drive ran for one week and we were able to collect over 370kg of food as well as monetary donations.  We look forward to working with the Guelph Food Bank and giving back to our community.
