Back to School Programs
  1. Grimsby Benevolent Fund - Last year we were thrilled to have groups, individuals, and Grimsby families partner with us for our back to school program. The donations that arrived throughout the summer was amazing! Would you consider joining in on the fun of collecting school supplies, shoes, and snacks for a purpose? Items can be dropped off at our receiving doors at the back of the retail store or brought to the cash. Online donations can be made by clicking here.
  2. Community Care of West Niagara - The Back-to-School program provides a backpack filled with school supplies to children and youth from low-income families. Our backpack comes fully equipped with grade specific supplies needed for each child to be successful at school. We also work in partnership with CTFS Jumpstart Sneaker program in providing a new pair of sneakers so that kids can be active in school. With the cost of living what it is today, our assistance program will ease a lot of already-tight budgets and will ensure that children go back to school with their head held high! To make an online donations click here.
  3. Village of Hope - With more than 400 Lincoln children enrolled in our Back To School program (registration remains open until August 31) your donations will make a dramatic difference in our community this Fall. Please donate at villageofhopeniagara.org/back-to-school. Donations ensure that these children will receive school supplies, healthy snacks throughout the year, new shoes, and haircuts, for their year ahead.
