Program Provides School Supplies to
Children Who Need Them Most
Value Drug Mart are set to kick off the ninth annual Kitz 4 Kidz campaign. The Kitz 4 Kidz program is a community initiative designed to collect and provide school supplies for children in our region who are unable to begin the school year with the basic necessities. This four week program begins August 7th and all donated school supplies collected at the local Value Drug Mart will stay in our community.
Over the past eight years, Value Drug Mart has been providing school supplies for children who need them most. The Kitz 4 Kidz program was introduced to raise awareness and provide school supplies for less fortunate children, while ensuring donations stay in our communities. The program has been a success. Cash donations, individual supplies and over 28,000 kits have been sold totaling over $172,000 in donations made to local communities across Alberta and British Columbia.
Donations can be made at your local Value Drug Mart. Individual school supplies and cash donations are also welcome. You may also choose to donate from two different “kitz” available in-stores. Each kit includes an assortment of pre-selected items and costs only $5.
If parents are unable to provide their children with the required school supplies, they should inform their child’s teacher or principal of the school. Teachers can then contact their respective School Board for the requested items. Supplies are given discreetly to ensure privacy.
