Henry Schein Canada- 10th Annual Back to School Event

Over the past 10 years, Henry Schein Canada has made the difference to close to 2,400 children nationally, ages 4 to 16 years, in preparing for back to school. This year, almost 127 children have been identified through Community Care, St. Catharines & Thorold, to receive a custom package, unique to them.

This will include a fabulous new back to school outfit, new shoes, socks, pants or skirts, shirts and undergarments. All clothing is purchased from Sears, Pen Centre with dollars raised thru Henry Schein Canada fundraisers. Henry Schein Canada will also provide each child with a backpack filled with school supplies, hygiene products and other items to make their first day of school happy, stress free and enjoyable. In addition, Community Care will supply them with 5 days worth of healthy snacks and a lunch bag. There is great joy as the children open their personalized boxes.

This back to school event will not only distribute back to school items for children in need, but will also feature free food and entertainment, bouncy rides, and arts and crafts activities making it a memorable evening for all. (NOTE: This event is not open to the general public)
