Gateway of Hope sends Langley kids back to class with the gear

Families needing help with school supplies can apply to the local program.

Langley families needing some help to outfit the kids with back to school supplies have until Friday to register.

The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope has been doing a school supply drive to help local families, accepting donations of backpacks and school supplies.

People wanting to find out more or wanting to register a child to receive supplies can contact the Gateway of Hope between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. or call 604-514-7375. Families can also stop by the shelter, 5787 Langley Bypass.

In addition to personal information (name, address, phone number) registrants will need to provide child’s name, care card number, grade and school attending. Langley and Aldergrove residents can register in person or over the phone.

To register a child to receive a school supplies kit you must:

– Be the parent or guardian of child

– Supply two pieces of ID (for adult)

The program provides students (kindergarten to Grade 12) with the basic school supplies they will need to succeed in school, including pens, paper, markers, binders, rulers, and scissors, just to name a few to ease the hardship of the cost of supplies.

Gateway partners with local businesses, community churches and the community to collect financial donations and donations of new school supplies.

Last year Gateway helped close to 300 kids in this community.

The website (gatewayofhope.ca) has a list of supplies that are needed for anyone withing to donate.
