The goal of Operation Backpack is to provide all K-12 underprivileged children in McDowell County Public Schools with a new backpack and school supplies. Although the majority of the supplies are usually distributed during the few weeks prior to school starting, we will supply students year-round as needed. During the school year, students can let their Teachers know when they need supplies. We will provide the assistance as long as supplies are available. Supplies and monetary donations are appreciated and needed! Donations are accepted year-round. Monetary donations may be written to The Endowment Fund, for Operation Backpack. Donations may be mailed or brought to McDowell County Schools, 334 South Main Street, Marion, NC 28752. We are very grateful for your support! Every little bit makes a big difference! Because of you, we are able to provide students with much-needed supplies and help them to have a successful school year. For more information please contact melaine.durham@mcdowell.k12.nc.us
