John MacKay, Bell Aliant Pioneers Cumberland Club with Sarah Macintosh of Maggies place.
The Bell Aliant Pioneers are involved in the Backpack project again in 2012. This project helps many children with their back to school needs. Without it many would not be able to return to school with the basic necessities such as a back pack, pencils, erasers etc.
The Cumberland Club has donated 150 back packs to Maggie's Place which is a resource centre for families. They work with Maggie's Place to provide the necessary school supplies for children in need. In a letter received by Sarah MacIntosh who is the Program Supervisor for the back to school project she thanks the Bell Alitn Pioneers and tells us that 164 children in the Cumberland County of Nova Scotia were helped by this generous donation.
