The SEET committee wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of the employees and associates that donated to Our Backpack Initiative!
We raised $730 towards the initiative. Dunya (CEO) matched the donations for a total of $1,460.
A special thank you goes out to Stella P (AlphaBee Intake Coordinator) who raised $220.
We raised enough money to outfit and purchase 50 Backpacks for in-need children. In conjunction with the Etobicoke Salvation Army in the Rexdale area we distributed the 50 backpacks to children who otherwise would not have been ready for back to school.
Each child received a backpack containing a variety of items including pens, pencils, crayons, markers, pencil crayons, glue stick, ruler, binder, paper, note pad, squeeze ball and a wm+a/AlphaBee t-shirt.
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE BACKPACK INITIATIVE WILL BE A YEARLY EVENT AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO DONATING MANY MORE in 2019!!
