Back-to-school season is upon us and Cardinal Village Senior Living is lending a helping hand to children in need. Cardinal Village will be collecting school supplies throughout the month of August to donate to Operation Backpack: a Volunteers of America, Greater New York, school supplies drive.

From August 1–31, the public is invited to bring new backpacks filled with new school supplies to the community, so they can be donated to VOA. You can also help fill backpacks by purchasing new school supplies and/or empty backpacks

To make a donation, purchase a new backpack and fill it with school supplies for one child, ranging in age from preschool to grade 12. When the backpack is filled, attach the label specifying the grade and drop it off at Cardinal Village. Or, drop off new supplies and/or empty backpacks for Cardinal Village to fill. If you drop off school supplies or a backpack with items from the list you can enter for a chance to win a gift card!

Operation Backpack is a back-to-school drive, conducted by VOA, that asks the public to fill backpacks with school supplies, such as binders, pens, pencils and folders, to be donated to children in need.

For a checklist of items and labels to print and attach to the backpack to specify what grade you made purchases for, please visit www.voa-gny.org/Get-Involved/Operation-Backpack/Copy-of-Fill-A-Backpack. Anyone wishing to donate can drop off their items at Cardinal Village, located at 455 Hurffville-Cross Keys Rd., Sewell. For more information about donating, please call 856-582-5292.
