We are nearing our goal of distributing more than 19,000 new, filled backpacks through Operation Backpack 2015! We could not have accomplished this tremendous feat without the support of countless individuals, corporate partners and community groups. Thank you for sharing our commitment to preparing our most vulnerable students for the first day of school and showing them that there are many people who care about their success.
