2013 SISS Thankyous
“I am ten years old and I am in grade 5. I lived in Africa and in August I came to Canada with my family. I have four brothers and two sisters. Your gift of a backpack full of school tools helps me learn English. Thank you for putting a smile on my face the first day at school!”

“I'd like to say a big thank you for providing backpacks and school supplies for my children's first day at school. They were very excited when I gave them their backpacks and school supplies. They told me, "Dad, I'll try my best to succeed in school and to get good marks." We're considered a low-income family and your timely assistance is highly appreciated.”
