OPL is once again helping the Caring and Sharing Exchange with the collection of school supplies for their Sharing in Student Success program. This program provides backpacks full of school supplies to children from families in need. After the 2018 fundraising campaign, a total of 4,007 children received back-to-school assistance. With one in six children in Canada living in poverty, the organizers expect the need for assistance will continue to rise. Let’s give every child the chance to go to school with their heads held high!
