Backpacks for the Homeless

On Monday, February 26, the New Life Neighbourhood Centre in partnership with the Durham Region Ontario Homeschoolers joined together to provide backpacks for the homeless filled with necessities such as food, warm accessories and toiletry items. They met at Memorial Park and provided hot chocolate and treats for all as both children and their parents had the opportunity to talk with individuals of the community and provide them with 2 bags. It was a great opportunity for children and adults to understand what homelessness is like.

Thanks to all who participated.
