Volunteers of America (VOA) announces Operation Backpack 2020! Every year thousands of local students return to school without the basic supplies they need to be successful. With support from our community we can give them hope to start this school year off right even if it is online.
VOA’s Operation Backpack officially kicks off its 14th year today, Monday, July 20th. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the campaign will be a virtual drive to raise $50,000 to purchase the supplies students need to be successful as they navigate distance learning.
With support from local donors and businesses school supplies will be purchased and delivered to the students who often fall behind because of unstable housing or lack financial resources – homeless children, foster youth, and at risk students.
