Operation Fill-A-Backpack 2012

Before you know it, summer will be over and children will be headed back to school.  Unfortunately, many parents of children in Twin Oaks programs simply cannot afford new backpacks and basic school supplies for the upcoming school year.  That’s why Twin Oaks is hosting our annual Operation Fill-A-Backpack drive!

Now through August 27, Twin Oaks invites 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!
