It is almost time for the children in the community to go back to school, but some families are struggling to get the necessary supplies. Through our annual Fill Up the Bus event, you can help by donating school supplies to children in need at the Rotholme Family Shelter.
This year, Fill Up the Bus has gone virtual! Rather than bringing school supplies on a bus on an August day, we invite you to purchase supplies at sharetheblessings.ca anytime between August 3 and September 30, 2021.
Share the blessings.ca offers an online catalog of essential items for the children of the Rotholme family shelter so that they can prepare for a successful school year.
Some of these items include:
- lined notebooks
- gym shoes
- lunch bags
- reusable water bottles
- children’s masks
- grocery gift cards
- and much more
When you select an item to donate through the online catalog, Rotholme Family Shelter will receive your donation to cover the cost of that item. We can then purchase these items for the children who stay with us throughout the school year. For help with the catalog checkout process, please refer to our step by step guide.
If you prefer, we can also accept donations in the form of checks made payable to Mission Services of London and mailed to 4-797 York St., London, Ontario, N5W 6A8.
Thank you to everyone who will be filling the virtual bus this year! The impact you will have is remarkable as children in need prepare to thrive this school year.
