We are so grateful that 50 kids will be headed back to school fully stocked with a cool backpack filled with the school supplies needed to get them started this Tuesday.
Disney Interactive/Club Penguin Staff went out and purchased the paper, pens, colouring pencils and much more to ensure that young people in need are prepared for the start of the school year.
Every year the Disney staff connect with us and ask whether we'd like to have some backpacks and this year was no exception. We know there are many families in our community who do not have the means to purchase all the supplies needed for the beginning of the year and taking that burden from them is wonderful, said Richelle Leckey, Community Engagement Coordinator, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.
Disney is an amazing organization that supports not only the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs but several charities both locally and abroad. Their support of the young people in our community it outstanding.
Thank you to the Disney Interactive/Club Penguin Staff who are making a difference every day!
