Operation Backpack

Currently, Operation Backpack provides about 400 food bags a week for at risk or low-income children. They deliver these packs to four different schools every Friday to ensure that the kids have something to eat during the weekends while they are not at school. The Kansas Spread The Love Salon, All About U, has been collecting food donations for Operation Backpack. The organization was so thankful to receive a large donation and is also excited that All About U Salon will continue to contribute. All About U will volunteer time to personally hand out backpacks and plans on putting together personal hygiene backpacks for 400 children with the help of Matrix and local businesses to send home with kids before summer break. Contact Theresa Gartner of Operation Backpack (785) 286-1370 for ways to help.
