It is already that time of the summer when we start to think about kids heading back to school. The Caring and Sharing Exchange is a local charity that provides assistance to Ottawa families and individuals in need, during the Christmas season and the back-to-school season.
The program provides children from families in need with a backpack filled with all the grade-appropriate supplies they need for a successful school year. The goal is to ensure every child in Ottawa starts the school year on equal footing with their peers, ready to learn. This year, there has been an overwhelming 38% increase in need and they currently have 822 children on their waiting list.
In our effort to serve every child on the list this year, it would appreciate if you would help them raise awareness to ensure no child is left behind. To learn how you can donate to the Caring is Sharing Exchange I invite you to visit the following link.
