I'm Kimya Nilsen, a Montclair, NJ resident. 4 years ago I decided to help Operation Backpack. This year I'm doing it again. Please join me.
The Volunteers of America have a drive to collect filled backpacks for kids living in homeless and domestic violence shelters. It’s going on July 8th through August 2nd.
So over the next few weeks I’m volunteering to collect filled backpacks from any of my friends, family and neighbors who want to participate (that’s you!) . But if you cannot (or don't want to) fill a backpack, donating money is a great way to help out. Money goes directly to buy school supplies in bulk. So, please donate today and spread the word!
