Backpacks For The Homeless 2018


The annual Backpacks For The Homeless has returned for another year, filling 2000 backpacks with essentials for those without a home.  This is a perfect way to give during the holidays to those in need.  Offices, service clubs, schools, and businesses can get involved.  The organization, and founder Ron Pitre supplies the backpacks, all you need to do is shop for the items on the list provided!



The approximate cost to fill one backpack is $20.00-$25.00.  Pick up your backpack today at SonXPlus, and GABS Restaurant both on Laurier Street in Rockland.


Shop for the items, and return your filled backpack no later than Monday December 17.   What goes into each backpack?


Mittens or Gloves

Hat, or Toque

A Treat Of Your Choice (chocolate bar etc.)



On Christmas Eve, founder Ron Pitre will be at The Shepherds Of Good Hope singing Christmas carols, and giving out backpacks filled with essentials generously donated by you.   For more information on Backpacks For The Homeless – contact Ron Pitre: 613-614-8447 or e-mail
