Backpacks for Boyle Street Community Services

Location: Edmonton, Alberta

Beneficiary: Boyle Street Community Services

Date:     May 2016

With the goal to amplify awareness to the homeless at Boyle Street, GGB solicited donations of stuffed backpacks to donate.  Padmanadi Vegetarian Restaurant hosted an event for interested people to get together to pack backpacks, and to listen to an inspirational speech from a guest speaker from Boyle Street.

Our Project reached the attention of a local elementary school teacher who was looking for a worthy project for her Leadership students to do. We assisted in bringing in a guest speaker from Boyle Street to speak to the youths.

All together, this awareness project resulted in 75 backpacks for adults, and around 30 for youths that were donated.
