From July through September stores fill with school supplies and families are shopping away, getting ready for a new school year. New backpacks, character folders and notebooks, calculators, rulers and more are gleaming on the shelves.
Joanne is Missing
Instead of shopping, Joanne is at home looking for a halfway decent backpack and gathering any used supplies she has. She does what she can to make sure her kids are ready for school. But are they? Do they have everything they need to be successful in school? Can they compete with fellow students when they are reminded that they are disadvantaged? You decide.
Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio Operation Backpack is the vehicle to get new supplies to children and school districts throughout Ohio. The support needed to accomplish this can only come from you. Together, with your support we can give children in Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus the confidence to get straight A’s.
