2ND ANNUAL PROJECT: BACK TO SCHOOL 2016 at the McGregor Park Community Centre

On August 20, 2016 Project: Restore FIBI hosted its second annual Project: Back to School event at the McGregor Park Community Centre in Toronto. In partnership with many great organizations we were able to support several families impacted by incarceration; families that live in every one of our communities across the Greater Toronto Area.

Through this initiative, we showed so many families impacted by incarceration that they have not been forgotten, that there is a network of support out here for them and that we are rooting for their success. This simple act of giving paints a literal picture of hope, love, compassion and community…the real stuff that changes lives and rewrites futures

PROJECT: BACK TO SCHOOL 2015 at the McGregor Park Community Centre

Our first annual Project: Back to School initiative was a success. Thank you to all of our donors and sponsors for your AMAZING support!

Mission Accomplished:
– 108 backpacks filled with school supplies & hand written “Words of Inspiration” handed out
– 15 prizes given away
– Pizza, drinks, chips & popcorn for everyone
– Back to School Bullying Prevention presentation
– Loads of fun

By the end of the day, the tables were empty and we had many happy and ready for school children!

We will continue to collect backpacks, school supplies and donations throughout the year so that we can continue to support these PHENOMENAL families. Throughout the school year we will have “replenishment” drives to top up the school supplies for the children and then host our bigger event(s) every summer leading up to the school year.

Again, Project: Restore FIBI thanks you. We have made a difference TOGETHER! Your support has had a SIGNIFICANT impact in the lives of over 100 children and their families.
