"Give Back for Back-to-School" with the United Way of PEI, Staples and the Upper Room Food Bank
The United Way of PEI, Staples and the Upper Room Food Bank have teamed up once again to make the back-to-school season a little easier for Island children. The organizations are partnering to raise funds which will help Island children start the school year off right with all the supplies they need to succeed. Our goal this year is to raise $6,000 in donations.
When you shop at Staples in Charlottetown, make a donation at the checkout. The money collected will create $40 Staples gift cards, which are then distributed to families through the Upper Room Food Bank (located at 33 Belmont St.). Families who would like to receive these gift cards for school supplies are required to bring a PEI Health Card for each of their children to the Upper Room Food Bank.
