Operation Backpack food drive start
November 7, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
ArtFusion 19464 is proud to partner once again with Operation Backpack to host a food drive during November. Operation Backpack is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, providing food to students in our community who would go without over the weekend. They work to help homeless and hungry students succeed by addressing the issue of childhood hunger.
Operation Backpack serves alongside individuals and organizations to collect food and materials. Volunteers pack these items into backpacks, which are sent out to qualifying students who discretely pick up the backpacks each Friday and return them on Monday. The process begins again for the next weekend.
Donations can be dropped off at 254 E. High St. during normal business hours (Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10am-3pm). We will have a collection box at the front of the store until November 25. Please check the list for approved items.
