A local charity is preparing to help kids go back to school this September without having to worry about supplies.
United Way of Hastings and Prince Edward has announced the return of its “Backpacks for Success” program for the 2023-24 school year.
The program helps provide backpacks full of school supplies to kids whose families would normally struggle to afford them.
Families will need to pay $12 per child to get a backpack as part of the program.
You’ll also need to sign up in advance when registration opens on June 12th.
August 2nd will be the last day you can sign up.
