Today, we were supposed to bring a backpack for the Backpack Drive at our church and I completely forgot! So, this week’s post highlights local “Back to School” drives or “Backpack” drives.
Although school has begun in a few of the districts, drives continue to be held around the Valley. This post is a quickie because instead of writing, I need to go out and get a backpack!
Here are a few links to some drives maybe happening in your area:
Promises 2 Kids: San Diego
Rowan County, North Carolina
Volunteers of America: Operation Backpack
Loving Through Literacy
How can we get involved?:
· Check out the links…Operation Backpack includes drop-off locations in numerous states
· Search your area for local Back to School or Backpack drives and donate if you can!
· Host a backpack drive (most likely for next year)
