Sports and School Supplies Drive

Help equip our students to play and learn!

Your donations of school supplies and sports equipment fuel our in-person programs!

School Supplies

School supplies allow our students to participate in many aspects of our lessons. Due to their expense, however, it is difficult to continuously supply high-quality learning materials at in-person programs while keeping our programs free.

We welcome any and all donations of school supplies, and are prioritizing the following items:
  • Writing utensils (pencils, pens, erasers, etc.)
  • Colouring materials (crayons, markers, etc.)
  • Calculators
  • Pencil cases
  • Paper (Blank, Line, and Graph paper)
  • Colouring books, colouring sheets
  • Writing notebooks
  • Chart and Poster paper
  • Art supplies (e.g., paintbrushes, watercolours, popsicle sticks, googly eyes, gluesticks, etc.)
  • Storage boxes

Sports Supplies

We are also looking for donations of sports equipment. At our YRES summer camps, we supported children’s physical growth and social skills development by coordinating group games involving sports equipment (e.g., soccer, obstacle course).

While we welcome all donations of sports equipment, we are prioritizing the following items:

  • Badminton equipment (rackets, birdies, nets)
  • Basketballs
  • Soccer balls
  • Footballs
  • Goalie nets
  • Hockey equipment (Hockey sticks, floor hockey balls, hockey pucks)
  • Ping Pong equipment (paddles, Ping Pong balls, Ping Pong tables)
  • Baseball equipment (protective gear, bats, baseballs)
  • Rubber balls
  • Dodgeballs
  • Soft foam balls
  • Hoola hoops
  • Jump ropes
  • Pylons
  • Other active play equipment
