For parents, August usually means getting their children ready for ”back to school”. They go around the various stores hoping to get the best deals on those essential items for their children’s new school year. Depending on each school’s requirements, the final bill may be hard to swallow, especially for low-income families.

In order to help those families, Sun Youth holds an annual school supplies distribution. We offer a variety of essential supplies (backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencil cases, etc.) that we receive as donations, as well as brand new material that we buy with donated money. Each year, hundreds of kids are equipped for the new school year. We also offer registered families new clothing : for Sun Youth, taking care of parents means contributing to a better future for the whole family. 

All of our clients are eligible to receive school supplies and clothing.
(Those who are not yet clients will need to provide us with the following documents to take part in the distribution: identification for each member, proof of address, proof of income).

Participation in the distribution is by appointment only. To make an appointment, please email or call 514 842-1214.

You can walk or drive to pick up your items on the appointed date. (We do not make deliveries, except to people with reduced mobility or in exceptional situations).

We can only guarantee school supplies and clothing to the first 1000 children registered.
