On 24th August 2019 Reachout Committee will be hosting our 13th Annual Community Back to School BBQ. We are reaching out to people like you to support this event. For those of you who are not familiar with our organization, Reachout Committee is a non profit organization operating since 2001. The mandate and mission of Reachout Committee is to promote community empowerment through awareness, encouragement and communication. To encourage, promote greater harmony, respect, equal opportunity and to develop strategies to improve the educational development of all young people. The activity of Reachout Committee includes advocacy, research, public education, and youth and community awareness.


All donations raised for this event will also assist in providing stock pile of backpacks filled with school supplies for students returning to school in September 2018. This will be given out at the Community BBQ. These students cannot afford to buy the essential items. These are the most vulnerable children in need and we want to help them start the school year with pride. The goal this year is to help 300 students; the essential needs are pens, pencils, notebooks, dictionaries, geometry sets, calculators, backpacks and other supplies. The age ranges are from Kindergarden to Grade 9.  We will be also having a writing contest where we want to give away 10 computers or laptops to youth who are starting their first year of high school.

Benefits of supporting Reachout Committee are your business will be recognized on all promotional materials that will be distributed right across the GTA. Your donation will also be acknowledged in our Keeping It Real newsletter as well as on the Reachout’s website www.reachoutcommittee.com on our Wall of Sponsors.
