    BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES
    Get involved in a community effort for children without necessary school supplies.  Have a backpack drive, or school supply drive in your neighbourhood, and donate them to a school in your area.Back pack

    Statistics:
    26 locations running School Feeding Programs
    11 locations running Red Cap Anger Management
    30 locations providing School Supplies

    BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND SNACK PROGRAMS
    Meet with respresentatives in your neighbouring schools to assess any need for breakfast, lunch or snack programs.  Provide non-perishable supplies to the school office for students who might not have or have forgotten their lunch. Explore opportunities for a breakfast club providing a nourishing start to the day.  More information about this type of program.

    HELPFUL PROGRAMMING
    Talk to the school administration about the need for programming such as the RED CAP Anger Management program.  This program is run in the school by TSA trained leaders, to provide constructive anger management tools to children. 

    SPORTS PROGRAMS
    Some schools will welcome the offer of screened volunteers to help with after hour sports programs.  They may also jump at the offer of free snacks periodically.  These are opportunities to get into your community and get to know people.
