Backpacks Project

Building a positive community starts with the first day of school and no child should be left behind.

The Bahá’ís of Aurora organized a donation event asking families to contribute fun-filled backpacks for children of all ages returning to classes this fall. We received over 35 backpacks of all sizes and colours that were distributed to local shelters in York Region.

The community’s open-hearted response is emblematic of a new era of philanthropy. Children and parents discussed the value of giving during a pandemic and acted together to make someone’s back to school experience more enjoyable.
