We know that one of the best poverty fighting tool is a full education – one free of disparities and inequalities. Research, however, has demonstrated that children and youth living in poverty tend to have poorer education results compared to their wealthier peers. These discrepancies are not due to the lack of ability to perform, but are rather the outcome of not having the necessary resources in order to be confident and successful in their academic journeys.
Please bring donations of the actual items to 10 Cork St. East, Guelph or make a monetary donation here.
The tremendously amazing thing about this program is that it is completely #GuelphFunded! Last year, over 1,300 children and youth returned to school prepared to succeed because of local sponsors and donors. #GuelphCares
