Help us Block the Bus!


Help us Block the Bus!

While summer may still be here, families are getting a head start on planning for the upcoming school session. Back-to-school shopping can be an exciting experience, however for some families it can be a financial burden, and a source of stress.

Every child, teen, and young adult should have the opportunity to enter their school year feeling confident and prepared to learn. With your generosity, we can make this possible!

VOCM’s Block the Bus School supply campaign, in support of Bridges to Hope is back. Starting Monday, July 22, drop off your school supplies to any Pipers location. Then on Friday, August 16, join us at Pipers on Elizabeth Ave. as we fill a Metrobus with even more supplies.

Last year, over 650 bags were filled and distributed to local families in need. Let’s make it happen again, and help ensure that kids can have the best possible start to their school year. Current priorities items needed include: erasers, colouring leads, pencil cases, glue sticks, scientific calculators, math kits, binders, markers, loose leaf,  coil notebooks and exercise books.

Full supply lists can be found here.
