Project Backpack(“PBP”) is a subsidiary of H.E.L.P. for Youth Canada Society. It is a community-based campaign that facilitates the hands-on charitable efforts of local schools, clubs, small and large companies who want to make a difference in the lives of Vancouver’s unhoused youth.
PBP offers a simple & low cost way to show empathy towards these vulnerable youth.
PBP donates the backpacks, then donors fill them with items that help street youth survive. These packs are delivered to various youth agencies in Vancouver for distribution.
The program is ideal for community-service campaigns in schools & seasonal-giving campaigns for companies.
Anyone can participate and every little bit helps. To date we’ve had participation from students, small and large corporations, clubs and individuals.
