Port Cares Back to School Campaign

For Immediate Release –  August 27nd 2013

Fifty four children will go back to school with supplies provided by some very generous businesses and local people from the community.   Canadian Tire Port Colborne partnered with Port Cares and raised $800.00 towards this project.  As well, Staples, Welland and the Bargain Shop in Port Colborne and many generous residents donated back to school items and financial support.   We now have a waiting list of children needing assistance.  Port Cares will accept donations of school supplies; and/or backpacks.    Financial  donations can be made at 92 Charlotte Street and a tax receipt will be issued for all donations of $20.00 and over.

All donations can be dropped off at Port Cares, 92 Charlotte Street Port Colborne between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm and Thursday until 8:00 p.m.
