Back to School Backpacks & Essentials

Calgary Board of Education students are in urgent need of your support as they get ready to go back to school this fall.

Each year, a handful of community partners support CBE students by donating thousands of backpacks and essential school supplies. Due to the high and ever rising cost of goods, over 3000 students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 received backpacks filled with supplies last year, and the need will be even greater next school year. The average cost of a backpack filled with supplies is $50.

Your donation guarantees that every student returns to school equipped for learning and can feel confident as they embark on the new year. Your donation not only helps individual students, but also supports families and communities navigate the high cost of living in our city.
