Over 12,000 Vancouver Public School students live in poverty. Often, children arrive at schools without the tools they need. In light of Covid-19, the need is greater than ever with more families struggling financially. The need for supplies will also be higher to limit the sharing of supplies among students.

Due to current health concerns, this year’s school supply drive asks for financial donations only, which will be used to purchase new school supplies in bulk.
