The funds raised in Canada will go towards the BBPA National Scholarship fund, dedicated to supporting and promoting Black Canadian youth through an annual scholarship program.
Its mission is to support the education and development of Canada’s future leaders, through assisting Black youth in their attainment of post-secondary education.

The funds will go towards financing backpacks with school supplies for the communities of La Loche, Clearwater River in Saskatchewan, and Pauingassi and Little Grand Rapids in northern Manitoba. Backpacks are especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic as schools in these communities continue to remain closed at a limited capacity.
