In partnership with local community-minded businesses and organizations, we distribute school supplies to over 350 students, with the demand climbing year after year. We feel that providing these items for students give them the ability to start the school year off on the right foot to focus on learning and their future success!

Back to School clients come from a variety of backgrounds, including:

  • Children of single mothers or single fathers
  • Children of working families trying to make ends meet
  • Children of seniors with custody of their grandchildren
  • Children of new immigrant families

BACK-TO-SCHOOL supply pick up will take place on Friday, August 25th at CLA Church – 11756 232 Street, Maple Ridge.

The Back-to-School fair will be open from 10am – 2pm, with a hot dog lunch being served from 12pm onwards.

Join us to pick up your supply kit, and take part in the activities offered on-site, including:

  • Mascots
  • Complimentary hair cuts
  • Bouncy castle
  • Community partner information
  • The Closet – family thrift shop
  • UpCycle – mobile adult clothing recycling
  • Hot dog BBQ lunch (veggie and halal options available)
