16G BoB Community Project

by Shelley Orlando

At the Centre For Compassion and Wisdom (CCW), Burlington, Ontario, throughout the summer Shelley Urlando led a small group of six participants through the BoB programme. The community project was to donate 30 filled school backpacks to a local children's charity supporting underprivileged children. CCW will also run an annual local BoB group each summer for 10 weeks.

Here is the response from the charity:

‘What a wonderful donation of school supplies!!! Please let the folks who supported this effort know that their hard work will certainly help to alleviate the anxiety associated with going back to school that some of our kids experience at this time of year.

On behalf of the CAFH, the Halton CAS and the children who will benefit from your kindness, please accept our sincere thanks.’
