THE STORY:

California Department of Child Support Services is happy to join Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack® and help children in need be prepared and excited for their first day of school! What is Operation Backpack? Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities return to school without the basic supplies they need. With your help, Operation Backpack® is able to provide thousands of backpacks, grade specific school supplies, and a variety of support services to homeless, at-risk and foster children from Pre-school to High School levels throughout the Bay Area, Greater Sacramento Area, and Reno regions. Together, we are helping children learn and thrive in school, stay in school, and build a bright future. 3 simple ways you can help children in need succeed in school: DONATE money online here. It's fast and easy to do. START SHOPPING and fill a backpack with school supplies then drop it off at a drop-off location near you. VOLUNTEER to help the campaign with marketing, data base tasks, sorting, item pick-ups, calls, etc... just give Volunteers for America a call at 916-265-3966. Why do this? Children who live in poverty or are homeless face many challenges and tremendous stigmatization – as a result, less than 25% graduate from high school. Preparing these children for school with a new backpack filled with school supplies boosts their self-esteem and gives them the tools and confidence needed to learn and thrive in school. Where do the backpacks go? The backpacks and school supplies we collect are used in a number of ways. All of the families and children in our programs are provided a backpack and school supplies. Volunteers for America also works with partner agencies and school districts to ensure as many children as possible get the tools they need to start the school year off on the right foot.
