Every kid deserves a cool backpack and a fun back-to-school experience. Together, we can help Columbia kids go back to school in style! We are raising money to purchase backpacks and school supplies to give to underprivileged children in Columbia. It only takes $20 to give a child a backpack filled with school supplies and ensure their year of learning begins with all of the things they need to succeed. We would be grateful if you helped us serve under-resourced, at-risk children as well as their families by sponsoring Operation Backpack 2017 for the purchase of backpacks. The backpacks will be distributed the week of August 7th, prior to Columbia Public Schools starting the 2017-2018 school year.
