2017 Operation Backpack Drive


Hi my name is Ken Fitzgerald. I work
for the Stanislaus County Office of Education. We’re here today kicking off
our Operation Backpack, that’s our annual drive where we work with several
partners across the community to collect backpacks for students who need
your support. There are over 6,500 homeless students in Stanislaus County these
backpacks go to help those students. If you want to help all you have to do is
pick up a backpack like this when you’re doing your own school supply
shopping pick up some extras to pick up an extra backpack $35 bucks is about all
it takes. You can drop them off at any one of the many locations across
Stanislaus County, this includes Alfred Matthews car dealership, which is
where we are this morning. Also any of the Mocse Credit Union locations in
Modesto, there’s also one in Turlock. Or you can swing it by our office, the Stanislaus County Office of Education at 1100 H Street.
