#TeamCarroll Update – CFF x Back To School Drive
With summer winding down, parents across the country were getting their children prepared for school. One of the more popular items on the parent’s check list would be school supplies. Children need certain school equipment in order to conduct their activities at school and at home successfully.

“TOGETHER WE BELIEVE WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE in hundreds of children’s lives for “Back to School Drive” with The Carroll Family Foundation”
– DeMarre Carroll, Advocate for The Carroll Family Foundation

The Carroll Family Foundation (CFF) understands that for some families this could be a challenge for their household due to financial constraints. CFF identified this need and decided to host a fundraiser/event called the “Back To School Drive” where donations of only $25 can help fill an entire backpack of essential school supplies for children in need.
Each backpack had the following items:

  • Activity books
  • Markers
  • Compass sets
  • Crayons
  • Lunch bag
  • Pencil Case
  • Pens
  • Binder
  • Calculator
  • Pencils

Ways of Contributing
There were a few ways of getting involved with this special event. Individuals and organizations could assist through cash donation (with each $25 contributing to one backpack) and also sponsoring supplies for the backpacks.
The Event
CFF President, Iesha Carroll, and CFF Staff gathered at the CRC Community Centre with Firaaz from the Muslim Welfare Centre of Toronto (MWCT), MWCT Volunteers, and Toronto Police Officers to help assemble the backpacks.

As DeMarre Carroll preaches every day, #HARDWORK, is the key to success! Therefore, on behalf of CFF – we like to wish every student a successful school year!
