Students in 20 cities throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec will receive one of Telus’s “Kits for Kids,” a total of which 2,400 will be distributed to students in the lower mainland. Kits are backpacks filled with school supplies from Telus Community Ambassadors. The kits are tailored to the needs of students in individual school districts from Kindergarten through Grade 7.
“It’s vital for students to be equipped with the basic tools they need to learn,” said Jill Schnarr, TELUS vice-president of Community Affairs. “For many parents it’s a struggle to find that extra money to buy school supplies when they can barely cover the cost of putting food on the table, and the TELUS Community Ambassadors Kits for Kids program will help ease that burden for some. I’m proud of our TELUS Community Ambassadors in the lower mainland and across the country who give where they live and work tirelessly to make a difference in our communities.”
What about giving some of us broke deadbeats a kit?
