The Backpack Project Christmas Campaign

The Backpack Project is an annual local initiative, which provides backpacks full of necessities and comfort items on Christmas Day, to community members who are experiencing homelessness. Backpacks are delivered to local women's and community shelters, and they are also handed out personally, to people in our communities throughout the CRD, that call the streets their home. This is the Projects 13th year in operation.  

Please support The Backpack Project again this year.  A drop off box has been placed at the front entrance to the Metchosin Municipal Hall.  Donations may be dropped off between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday (excluding statutory holidays).

Thank you for your support.
