Operation Backpack @ Food Truck Friday July 13th
July 13 at 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT
Thousands of children in the Reno area are homeless and return to school without the supplies they need. This impacts their education and their spirit. But YOU can make a difference. Join Volunteers of America’s Operation Backpack collection drive on Friday, July thirteenth during the Food Truck Friday event at Idelwild Park. Donate cash, a backpack, or school supplies and make a difference in the life of a homeless child. Idelwild Park is just west of downtown Reno, between Idlewild Drive and the Truckee River. Operation Backpack will help kids in kindergarten through twelfth grade across Washoe County feel good to start their first day of school with a backpack full of supplies. Learn more at OperationBackpackNCNN.org and bring your donations to Idelwild Park Friday July thirteenth.
