Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Backpack Program

SSVP Canada

Each year, your generosity has enabled the children within our Parish community to begin their school year with a backpack filled with school supplies.  The kids are counting on us again this year!

The greatest need is for 120 full sized backpacks as well as 20 small packs with lunch bags for the children starting kindergarten.  Donated gift cards from Staples / Walmart are also much appreciated to facilitate the purchase of supplies. 

The SSVP will have a table in the narthex starting the weekend of July 13 and 14.  We invite you to drop by and see how your family might support the Parish in this essential program.
