Every Child Deserves a Great First Day of School!

Before we know it, summer will be over and it will be “Back to School” time! Children throughout the region will pick out pencils, notebooks, and more for their first day of school. Unfortunately, many parents of children in Oaks Integrated Care programs cannot afford new backpacks and basic school supplies for the upcoming school year.

We invite the community to Fill-A-Backpack for a child or teen in need of support. A new backpack and school supplies will give a child hope and the confidence needed to start the school year off on the right foot!

Get Involved!

  1. Drop off donations to a location below.
  2. Run your OWN Operation Fill-A-Backpack drive. Get your family, friends, co-workers or community involved! Oaks can provide you with a toolkit including collection bins, flyers and email templates.
