When it comes to academic success, making sure that children have all the school supplies they need is only one piece of the puzzle. Providing homework assistance to children whose parents can’t help with their homework, tutoring programs tailored to the child’s needs, mentoring those who are isolated, and offering after-school programs to help identify at-risk teens, are all critical elements needed to support academic success.
This is why we are turning to you for help this summer with our #GotYourBack to school campaign.
#GotYourBack means offering school supplies.
#GotYourBack means homework assistance.
#GotYourBack means offering mental health support.
#GotYourBack means reaching out to at-risk youth.
#GotYourBack means offering tutoring programs.
#GotYourBack means so much more than a backpack.
All of these programs are offered by several community organisations and are designed to meet the youth where they are, be it at school, at home, at a youth drop-in centre, or anywhere else we’ll find them. But these organisations need your help to maintain and grow their services.
During these times of high inflation, low-income families will definitely feel the pain of this year’s back to school season. Caisse Desjardins de l’Ouest-de-l’Île is proud to partner with Community Shares for this year’s back-to-school, and we commit to doubling your donation throughout the summer until September 15th.
Please join us by making a donation as a sign of solidarity with other West Island families. Raise your hand and say proud & loud… #GotYourBack.
P.S. Thank you in advance for your generosity and if you have recently made a donation to Community Shares, please accept our deepest gratitude.
