Back to school - Backpack Buddies of Sudbury

Morning North

Back to School this September often begins with back to the mall during August so parents can outfit their children with many of the supplies they will need in the classroom. It can add up particularly for families with limited financial resources. That's where the 'Backpack Buddies of Sudbury' campaign comes into play. When school ended last June, a drive to collect new or gently used backpacks plus school supplies began. All summer long, Brady Storage Solutions downtown was the drop off location for these 'tools for school' and on Thursday, the storage facility on Brady street will host an afternoon barbecue to distribute the supplies. Peter Williams stopped by Brady Storage earlier to talk with Melanie Pelletier and Kelly Maloney about this year's campaign.
