OPERATION BACKPACK

HELP KIDS MAKE THE GRADE! YMCA initiative to collect 6,000 backpacks for children in Fayette and Jessamine counties

The YMCA of Central Kentucky invites you to extend a helping hand to children in your local community through Operation Backpack, a new Y initiative to collect 6,000 new donated backpacks to distribute at the annual neighborhood Back to School Rallies Saturday, Aug. 4.

TO MAKE A BACKPACK DONATION:
1. Purchase a new full-size backpack for a child or make a monetary donation.
2. Write a note of encouragement to put in the backpack. 
3. Bring the backpack to the Y or a participating drop-off location by July 23.

All backpacks that will include school supplies will be distributed at the annual Back to School Rallies at 17 sites across Fayette and Jessamine counties. This annual event is open to elementary (parent/guardian must be present), middle and high school students.

For more information about Operation Backpack or to join our growing family of partners, please contact vice president of philanthropy Bobbi Silver at give@ymcacky.org or call 859-367-7333.
