All students deserve to have the right tools for success at school.

For many students, the back to school season brings with it the excitement of showing off new shoes and supplies to friends. But yet there are also far too many students who end up attending the first day of school without even the most basic of supplies, such as a backpack or writing utensil.

CAA North & East Ontario want to make sure students in Ottawa and Northern regions are equipped with the right supplies when they return to the classroom. CAA will be accepting donations up until August 15, 2017. CAA will be collecting essential school supplies to benefit various programs in the Ottawa and Northern regions.

You can drop off your donations at any of our CAA Stores. Donate and receive 10 CAA Dollars.

Most needed items:

  • New backpacks, child or youth-sized, with no corporate logos, offensive designs, or text
  • New pencil cases with no corporate logos, offensive designs, or text
  • Blunt scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • Packages of colouring pencils
  • Calculators
  • Geometry sets
