Building a better back-to-school

August 2022 | Kitchener, ON

With fewer restrictions and more activities in place, students can return to school this year knowing they can receive a full school experience. This means looking forward to extracurricular activities like sports, field trips and more social time with friends and family.

To help make this school year even more special, we decided to participate in the Backpack Challenge hosted by Waterloo Regional Police Services. The Challenge encourages residents to purchase new backpacks, lunch bags and school supplies to be donated to our region’s children and families in need.
