The Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers will be working with local agency Inner City Home to give aid to the city’s vulnerable population.

Backpack Basics will provide 200 men, women and children who are homeless with the basic hygiene supplies needed to support overall health and wellness. 

The backpacks include dental supplies, toiletries, safety supplies, feminine hygiene products, essential school supplies and more. 

The backpacks can then be returned to Inner City Home to be replenished throughout the year. 

“We are reaching out to the members of our community to help support this project,” said Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers President Shannon Kenrick-Rochon, in a release. “Those interested in helping can purchase a backpack for $30 to be filled, and 100 per cent of the funds collected support the Backpack Basics program.”

Backpacks can be purchased online by both individuals or companies, and there is no limit on the backpacks to be filled.
