Today, the BFC United Hearts Program partnered with Canadian Tire to donate 500 backpacks for the students who lost their belongings in the York Memorial School fire last week.

Shari Schwartz- Maltz, communications manager for the TDSB was on Toronto’s top TV stations today talking about the program and thanking Canadian Tire for their donation. Students from York Memorial were welcomed to George Harvey School and our United Hearts program will be shipping them a brand new Woods Georgina backpack on behalf of Canadian Tire. Keep an eye on local Toronto news tonight to catch a clip from this morning (Cp24/CTV /City TV/CBC).
