Operation BackPacks has offered a helping hand to Chatham-Kent families since 2001. Our goal is to ensure each child in Chatham-Kent has a new backpack filled with basic, grade appropriate school supplies. This will ensure a great start to an exciting year of learning, exploring and social growth.
All donations received go toward programs and services to help people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. In cases where donations exceed what is necessary, United Way Chatham Kent Region will direct the funds to support local community services in other areas of critical need.
