How you can get involved.

The odds facing children and youth in child welfare are startling. Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada believes we can – and must – do better for our young people.

The kit packing experts at Bargains Group will work with your team’s numbers and budget to custom design a kit building event for 5-500 to benefit the children and youth served by the Foundation.
