The Volunteers of America are collecting backpacks filled with school supplies to distribute to kids in need for the coming school year. The Third Annual Operation Backpack Collection starts on August 1st and runs through August 24. How can you help? Purchase a new backpack and collect the supplies on one of the lists for Kindergarten, Elementary, or Middle/High School. The forms are available on the program’s website and need to be included inside of your completed backpack donation. You can also make a monetary online donation. You can drop off your completed backpacks at the Columbus Underground August Happy Hour, at any Columbus Metropolitan Library, any Walgreens store, or a Volunteers of America thrift store.
