Support kids at risk with Stephen’s Backpacks

This fundraising event for Burnt Thicket Theatre also raises awareness for Stephen’s Backpacks to support kids at risk of homelessness. See video below & help fill a backpack! Stephen McPhee, a Calgary boy with autism and a passion to help homeless kids in his city, started the society in 2008.

Download this year’s list of items needed for backpacks for kids at risk of homelessness. Drop off items or fully packed backpacks by Dec 15 at College Park Church, 909 Acadia Drive in Saskatoon.
