Every year, ABC Head Start provides backpacks to our children filled with the tools they need to be successful in their educational journey. Watching the faces of the children as they receive their backpacks is priceless, as they light up with excitement and joy. The backpacks are filled with books, crayons, pencils, a "reading buddy" (stuffed teddy), a glue stick, and many more tools to support their learning.
For just $40 you can buy a backpack for an ABC Head Start child.
Our goal is to raise $20,000! That's 500 backpacks, for Literacy Backpack Day! Help us reach our goal today!
For over 32 years, ABC Head Start Society has provided Edmonton’s under resourced children and families with the pre-kindergarten and family support programming they need to get ready for school, build strong foundations in the early years, and reduce the adverse impacts of poverty on vulnerable families. Our vision is that children and families thrive as actively engaged citizens of strong and inclusive communities. Registered as a charity since 1985, ABC Head Start Society now serves over 430 children and families in 6 locations across Edmonton.
