St. John Ambulance and Staples are holding a school supply drive for children in need.
Spokesperson Diana Sustawenko tells us there’s a large need for backpacks and supplies.
“We go to the school boards and they are the ones that tell us the names of the families that need the supplies the most.”
The backpacks will be donated to the St. Tomas Anglican Church Family Giving Centre.
St. John Ambulance hopes to raise $800 today which could help fill 100 backpacks full of supplies.
