This worthwhile endeavor ensures that many homeless students, kindergarten through twelfth grade in Oakland County, are able to enter school in the fall with colorful new backpacks filled with new school supplies. The program is coordinated through Oakland Schools Homeless Student Education Program.
Volunteers, including children and grandchildren spend two fun-filled days setting up and filling the backpacks. To volunteer for either day or both days call (248) 355-3300, ext. 0
