5th Annual Backpack & School Supply Drive
The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope, in cooperation with The Salvation Army BC Division, is proud to present the 5th Annual Backpack & School Supply Drive. Last year, Gateway of Hope alone outfitted just under 300 Langley & Aldergrove community kids with the school supplies like binders, paper, pencil crayons, markers, glue, scissors, etc.
Donations of new school supplies and backpacks will be accepted during the month of August at The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope located at 5787 Langley Bypass, Fitness Town, Langley & Aldergrove Thrift Stores and participating Starbucks. Gateway of Hope assists all kids and teens from K-12. Registration went up 27% from 2012 to 2013. Registration is required to receive a school supplies package and parents can do so over the phone or in person at Gateway of Hope.
We would appreciate any new donations of the below:

The Gateway of Hope is located in the community of Langley (City of Langley) and embodies the Salvation Army’s century old mission to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the people we serve.
At The Gateway there are many ways we come along side those in need. So much more than a homeless shelter, The Gateway of Hope serves all people, regardless of ethnicity, spiritual beliefs or age. Treating all individuals that come to us with respect and compassion, we work to build relationships and partnerships with all layers within the Langley’s.
The doors at The Gateway of Hope are always open to receive the community. We welcome your support as we provide daily meals through our Community Meal Centre, access to emergency shelter, spiritual guidance and much more through our Programs and Services.
“Looking after people in need of life’s basic necessities is at the core of what we do.”
