"Programs such as Pack a Sack alleviate the financial strain on our community houses. Not only does Pack a Sack outfit children and youth in our communities with the supplies they need to succeed – it allows us to focus our budgets on our other programs."

Sylvie Manser, Chair of the Ottawa Coalition of Community Houses
