Operation Backpack 2017 collects record-setting 201k propagandize reserve – KTRK

August 5, 2017 - School Supplies

Thanks to Houstonians’ generosity, Operation Backpack 2017 was a biggest in a event’s history, collecting 201,000 units of propagandize reserve in only a day.

Volunteers began building Backpack Mountain before emergence on Friday morning, and it grew to new heights within hours — good over final year’s six-foot level.

Every trek collected will be filled with reserve and sent to children in scarcely 40 opposite area propagandize districts.

You can continue to present backpacks and other kinds of propagandize reserve until Aug. 11 during 32 YMCA of Greater Houston and H-E-B locations via a city, and participating The UPS Store, Greater Houston Honda Dealers and Shoe Carnival locations.

You can also content a word SCHOOL to 91999 to make a money donation.
