Urban Society of Aboriginal Youth also organized free health services at Calgary event

The Urban Society of Aboriginal Youth (USAY) gave away about 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to First Nations children at an event on Thursday.

The supplies went to students from pre-school to Grade 12.

The bags were filled with pencils, crayons, notebooks, and for some of the older students, such things as deodorant and calculators.

“Most of the kids are unfortunately low-income, so we want them to go back to school feeling fantastic about their school year so we fill it with everything they could possibly need for their school year,” said LeeAnne Ireland, executive director of USAY.
