Operation Backpack is City Light Church’s annual back-to-school outreach project where we distribute free backpacks and school supplies to families facing financial difficulties in our community.
Registration is free and all applicants will receive their required school supplies and a backpack to prepare them for class in the fall. To register, click here!
We are also collecting donations to help us pack our backpacks! If you, your family, or you business wish to contribute, here is what we are looking for:
  • Pencils, pens, highlighters
  • Markers, crayons, pencil crayons
  • Erasers, scissors, glue, calculators
  • Pencil cases & boxes
  • Scribblers, lined paper, sketch pads
  • Duotangs, folders, binders
  • Lunch kits, water bottles
You can also give financially by sending an e-transfer to giving@citylightchurch.ca and writing ‘backpacks’ in the comments of your transfer. We also accept donations by debit/credit/cash/cheque at our 11AM Sunday morning services.
