Join us for the Spring and Summer Operation BackPack Shred Events. We hold these events each year to raise awareness for VBSchools students in need of backpacks/school supplies.
What kind of donations do you accept?
During the events, donations of new backpacks or cash donations are accepted but are not required.
Who receives the donations?
All donations are passed directly to the VBCPS Social Service department and given to students in need. Each year, there are approximately 700 students in need of school supplies & backpacks in VBCPS.
