With back to school around the corner, Kid2Kid hosted their second volunteer initiative, called ‘Got Your Back’ in July and August.
With the help of many families from the Beaches Community, organizers Caroline and Shah purchased back to school essentials including backpacks, lunch bags, and school supplies, for kids residing at the local Red Door Shelter. Due to COVID-19, the initial plan of assembling the backpacks as a community was not possible. Rather some families individually packed the bag(s) they had sponsored and the Kid2Kid team put the rest together and delivered the goods. Some of the folks that participated shared how rewarding it was to have their kids take part of something that they really are able to understand and be part of.
Below are some quotes and photos from this wonderful opportunity that we had.
A non profit organization that aims to involve children in community initiatives that benefit other children.
Our goal is to relieve poverty by providing school supplies and other basic necessities to youth in need in Toronto and surrounding areas.
At Kid2Kid, we encourage children to spread kindness through their actions.
We have two "Got Your Back" initiatives per year: a Winter Tote one held in January/February & a Back to School backpack one held in July/August.
