The Town of Sidney is once again acting as a drop off location for The Backpack Project, an annual local initiative which provides backpacks full of necessities and comfort items to community members who are experiencing homelessness in the Greater Victoria region. Sidney residents and businesses are invited to bring donations of toiletry items, ready to eat foods, new or gently used blankets & sleeping bags, hoodies & sweaters, warm socks, scarves, hats & gloves, and new or gently used backpacks to the Town's donation bin. The bin is located just inside the front door of Sidney Town Hall (2440 Sidney Avenue).
Our doors are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. We will have our donation bin in place until Friday, December 20, 2019, after which the Backpack Project will collect and distribute the donated items.
