When schools close, many of our students are left without the valuable supports that they receive during the school day. There are students that find school their safe place – a place where they can be a kid and receive the support of their teachers and classmates. Phys Ed offers them a chance to exercise their body while class time exercises their minds. Some students receive their only food at school through the nutrition programs. On average, 4000 breakfasts, snacks, and lunches are served daily to students who need it.
SPSF packages and delivers Cheer Crates to families during school breaks. Through the work of community school coordinators and Saskatoon Public Schools staff, families are identified as needing extra support. Each $100 donation will bring a family joy and make them feel like the community cares.
All Cheer Crates are valued at approximately $100 each and consist of food including dairy products, eggs, bread, fruits and vegetables, cereal and canned goods, as well as books, hygiene items and fun activities for the family.
In 2020 alone, Cheer Crates were delivered to over 2200 families in 50+ schools across Saskatoon. This meant that approximately $220,000 was invested in
Saskatoon Public Schools families in one year.
