EVENT: Operation Backpack 2016
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. Participate in Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack® and help children in need be prepared and excited for their first day of school! Join us and together we will reach our goal of providing at least 12,000 filled backpacks to children before they start their new school year!
