    Impact Value

The school year has started, and Operation Backpack® has come to an end. Throughout the program you stepped up to donate, sort and distribute backpacks full of school supplies to homeless and at-risk children across the state of Michigan.

Because of you, children are starting school confident, prepared and ready to learn. You made Operation Backpack® a success.

The needs of homeless and at-risk children are ever present, and it takes the combined efforts of a caring community to truly make a difference. By working together, you took critical action to give these children a chance.

From our family to yours, thank you for making a difference. We are proud to serve beside you and can't wait for next year!

I volunteer because I know that if I were ever in need, I would hope someone would step up and do the same.
