Calgary Police Youth Foundation – Backpack Drive

The Calgary Police Youth Foundation is proud to be hosting the third annual Pohkaisksinimaatstsoh’taksist (The Children’s School Supplies) Backpack Drive for Indigenous and marginalized students in Calgary.

Through this campaign, they will be providing 820 students in select schools with a backpack filled with essential school supplies and providing some basic food supplies and a department store card to help each student start the school year off with everything they need to start well and succeed.

Join this incredible initiative by becoming a Sponsor! By becoming a sponsor, you can help purchase a variety of much needed items to help fill these backpacks for students in need. For more information on Sponsorship opportunities or gift in kind donations, please contact Barbara Pohl at
