Back Packs for Kids

United Way’s Back Packs for Kids program supplies over 1,400 students with new back packs and school supplies annually.

The essential supplies are supported by a large group of community partners including, Staples Business Depot, Ganaraska Financial Services, Cameco Corporation, Northumberland County, Lions Club of Cobourg, Food 4 All Warehouse, Sabic, The Kaitlyn Bates Foundation, and individual contributors.

Their generous support has enabled the United Way to provide back packs full of supplies for distribution to both elementary and high school students throughout Northumberland County to ensure a positive start to each new school year.
