Thank a Teacher – Buy a Backpack

Are you considering a teacher’s gift and stuck on how to say thank you for a great school year?

Consider giving your child’s teacher the gift of giving back.

By making a $15 donation, you will purchase a backpack full of school supplies in support of United Way Peterborough’s Back Pack for Kids program.

The teacher will be given a certificate in their name and in September, this backpack will be given to a student in need to ensure they are ready to learn with a backpack full of school supplies.

Sometimes the best way to show gratitude to someone is to pay it forward.

For more information or to purchase a Backpack, call United Way Peterborough at 705-742-8839 x32 and ask for Stephanie.
