Build a Virtual Backpack

Select from the items below to donate part of a backpack or complete backpacks. You can add one item to your cart multiple times by increasing the quantity upon viewing the cart. 

The Sharing in Student Success Program provides grade appropriate stuffed backpacks to Ottawa children from families in need. In September 2016, 2,065 children received a backpack through this program.

Each virtual backpack built allows one more child to begin the school year on equal footing with their peers, ready to learn. Please donate now and help a child return to school with their head held high, ready to learn.
