Let’s Give Back Through Operation Backpack
Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities begin school without the basic supplies they need including backpacks.
That’s why from now until July 27th, we invite you and your kids to stop by any Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics location and drop off a donation of a backpack and/or school supplies to help a child in need prepare for their education.
Take these 2 easy steps to participate:
- Purchase a new backpack and school supplies
- Drop off your donation at any Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics location by July 27, 2019
With a 13% poverty rate and the highest cost of living in the United States, many California families struggle every year to fund school supplies for their children.
With your help, Volunteers of America has been hosting the Operation Backpack® Campaign and has distributed thousands of new backpacks filled with school supplies to students in need throughout the greater Northern California area and beyond. This year we hope to continue equipping students and encourage them to stay in school!
