Telus helps students start their school year with Kits for Kids, offering backpacks jammed with supplies

telusStudents in 20 cities throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec will receive one of Telus's "Kits for Kids," a total of which 2,400 will be distributed to students in the lower mainland. Kits are backpacks filled with school supplies from Telus Community Ambassadors. The kits are tailored to the needs of students in individual school districts from Kindergarten through Grade 7.

What about giving some of us broke deadbeats a kit?
