The community around Jane Street and Finch Avenue in Toronto has the highest school dropout rate in the city. Students in the neighbourhood face many challenges because of the high poverty rate, and COVID-19 hybrid learning has just been one more obstacle to overcome. Jane Finch Community Ministry provides students with backpacks and school supplies geared to their grade levels. Having their own school supplies helps students get ahead and shows them that community members are rooting for their success.
Your Gift of $30 will provide one student with a backpack full of the supplies they need to succeed.
