|Description and Service Details|
|Description (Service)||COVID-19 - This year, instead of a backpack of supplies, families will receive a gift card to a back-to-school retailer within their neighbourhood. This will provide families with the freedom to choose what will best support their children for school this fall. Qualified families are eligible for $40 per child, up to a maximum of $100 per family. Registration is open from Aug 11-Aug 24 or until funds have run out. Proof of school enrollment may be required and gift cards will be mailed out on Sep 4 to the registrants address. Visit the website to register or make a donation.
Working in partnership with school boards, churches, local workplace volunteers and employees, and retailers Operation BackPacks provides backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies to school-aged children throughout the Municipality of Chatham-Kent. Children may be referred by local organizations, schools or parents may request the support themselves.
