Operation Backpack: Helping Kids in Need

Posted on Jul 7, 2015

Bay Area Poster (1) (3)Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities return to school without the basic supplies they need. 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.

The SEBMF Orinda Care Center is collecting backpacks and school supplies for Volunteers of America’s Operation Backpack. Please drop off your backpacks and supplies by Friday, July 17. Our goal is to donate 50 backpacks! Here’s the Backpack Supply ListClick here to visit the Operation Backpack website.
