Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Virtual Backpack Drive?
Think of a traditional Back-to-School Backpack Drive, but virtual! You are able to select the Backpack Kits you want to ‘buy’ (donate) into your online cart, check out, and those items will be donated to families in need. 

Why Parents Engaged in Education (Toronto) and HAM?
Will the items I select be the actual ones donated?
Yes! We will purchase those items, package and deliver these backpacks to the organizations in Hamilton and Toronto which will then be distributed to families in need of school supplies this Back-to-School season.

If I donate a Backpack Kit, is it true that C3 Toronto will match this donation?
Yes! C3 Toronto will be matching all donations for every Back-to-School kit donated. Double your donation!

Will I get a tax receipt for my donation?
Yes, you will get a tax receipt for your donation. Tax Receipts will be issued by C3 Toronto in February 2024.
