This school year, there are children who won't have the basic supplies they need to keep up in class. Operation Backpack 2016 — and you — can make a big difference. Give now to fill a backpack with supplies so an underprivileged child can be prepared for school. You'll give a child a real chance to succeed in school and in life, or a struggling family a chance to get back on their feet! Please give your back-to-school gift today.
