Operation: School Supplies

Providing children with new school supplies to start school with confidence!

The beginning of a new school year should be a time of eagerness and excitement. Yet for many poor children it can be embarrassing if they do not have adequate backpacks and school supplies. The Operation: School Supplies program provides children with the supplies they need to start the school year with confidence.

This program assisted 205 children in 2018.
Many thanks to our friends at Innersole who provided new sneakers for all of the children!
