Your donation helps vulnerable HDSB students start school on the right foot. Whether it’s a backpack full of school supplies, shoes and clothing, hygiene items or school lunches and snacks, every child should have the chance to go back to school prepared and excited to learn.

“The gift from HLF helped our family tremendously. We were able to get school supplies and new shoes for our boys. I honestly don’t know what we do without your support.”

“When I found out HLF was going to pay for my field trip, I felt like a huge weight was taken off my shoulders. It was an amazing experience and I am grateful for what HLF has done for me and my education.”

Adam, 16HDSB student

“My student was very proud of her new clothes, which allowed her to fit in with the other kids at school. She no longer had to go to the Lost and Found to find warmer boots to wear.”
