Calling all Mid-Michigan (Lansing area) Readers: Operation Backpack has started!!
Whether your ready or not, School is right around the corner for all of us living in Mid-Michigan! I came across a great campaign going on in the Lansing area called Operation Backpack! Now this would be very inexpensive for all of us "deal seekers"! Keep reading for all the details of this great campaign. Every kid going back to school should have a new backpack loaded with tons of school supplies!
Operation Backpack is a volunteer driven back-to-school effort Co-Chaired by Congressman Mike Rogers and Lupe Izzo benefiting the children served by St. Vincent Catholic Charities. STVCC is collaborating with Andy Provenzano, WILX-TV 10 and Two Men and a Truck in an effort to successfully reach our goal of 1,000 donated backpacks stuffed full of school supplies. Operation Backpack runs now through August 27th. The drive concludes with a back-to-school rally where the children will receive their backpacks and school supplies.

Let me know if you plan on doing this. I think it will be fun to have the kids help pick out a backpack and put some school supplies in it. It's a great way to teach them about giving back to others!
