Back to School Fair & Backpack Program

Looking for additional back to school support?

A partnership with the Cochrane & Area Family Resource Network (FRN), Staples and the Kiwanis Club of Cochrane aims to ease the stress by providing students K-12 with important back to school supplies. 

Eligible participants must show proof of enrollment in a Cochrane or West Rocky View County school and provide GST/HST Credit Notice listing dependent children.  

Applications must be done in-person as you pick up the supplies at the same time.

Program starts: Mon, Aug 28, 2023
127 First Ave W
Mon-Fri, 8:30am-12pm & 1-4:30pm 

How to donate!

We are accepting monetary donations to support this program, visit the FRN at 127 First Ave W or call 403-851-2265. Donations can also be made at Staples, 40 Quarry 
Str E.
