Families in the Monaco region will be able to help children in precarious financial conditions prepare for the start of the school year, thanks to a campaign created by Click Monaco, the Association Les Enfants de Frankie and Stars’n’Bars.
Every year, back to school is a real headache for many parents. There is no escaping the annual dilemma of what to do with the kit which is supposedly no longer trendy and a “fashion accessory” that must be both functional and light.
The operation #DonneTonAncienCartable (Make a gift of your backpack) aims to collect as many backpacks that are “fashionable” but still in good condition.
Kate Powers, co-founder of Stars’n’Bars, said: “We are delighted to be part of this original recycling initiative to help children in need, but also to help the planet to reduce waste.”
Collection will take place on Saturday July 1 from 10 am to 1:30 pm at Stars’n’Bars, so that everyone can drop their backpack from last year and then enjoy a sunny family day on Port Hercule.
