McMinnville's Operation Backpack is happening Saturday, August 17, 2013 at Newby Elementary School, 1125 SW 2nd Street, McMinnville.

As we look towards the coming school year, we'd like to showcase this great program and alert everyone to look for our toothbrushes in the backpacks! Operation Backpack has been helping families in need for the past nine years by supplying children with the tools they need to have a successful school year.

Children are invited to come to the event, pick out a backpack and fill it with items such as: #2 pencilsblue or black pens pink erasers composition books notebooks scissors Kleenex glue sticks spiral notebooks pocket folders 3-ring binders index cars calculators Crayola-brand crayons colored pencils washable markers Many businesses are getting involved in Operation Backpack and you can, too.

Donation sites have been set up around McMinnville, including OnPoint Credit Union, PayneWest Insurance, Serendipity Ice Cream, USBank, Bi-Mark, Oregon Stationers, Wild Haven Properties, Kraemers, First Federal, Columbia Bank, McMinnville Crossfit, the Salvation Army and many local churches.
