Back Pack Campaign In Bruce And Grey

The Bruce Grey United Way’s annual backpack campaign is underway.

The United Way’s Francesca Dobbyn says they expect to fill about 2,300 backpacks full of school supplies. ¬†They’re then distributed to less fortunate families so all kids can have decent school supplies when they go back to class.

Cash and school supply donations can be dropped off at the United Way office in Owen Sound or at Bruce Telecom or Meridian offices.

Dobbyn says families who feel they need the backpacks should register through the 211 telephone system.
