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 and throughout the year to community members who are experiencing homelessness. Backpacks are delivered to local women's and community shelters, as well as individuals within the CRD who are experiencing homelessness. This is the 14th year of operation for the Backpack Project. 

Donations of toiletry items and ready to eat foods, as well as comfort items such as gently used blankets and sleeping bags, hoodies and sweaters, warm socks, scarves, hats and gloves are appreciated. 

Donations of comfort items and necessities may be dropped off at the Municipal Hall's main lobby between the hours of 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
