      EVENT DETAILS
      Cardinal Village Collecting Backpacks and School Supplies for Operation Backpack

      As back-to-school sales begin to appear, many families are unable to provide their children with the appropriate school supplies—even at promotional prices. Join Cardinal Village Senior Living Community in efforts to collect new backpacks and other grade-specific supplies to support Operation Backpack®: Volunteers of America, Delaware Valley Chapter.

      From Sunday, July 28 through Saturday, Aug. 24 you can drop off a new backpack and grade-specific supplies at Cardinal Village, located at 455 Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, Sewell, from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. The collection includes Pre-K through 12th grades. Acceptable items are composition notebooks, 24-pack of crayons, #2 pencils, pencil pouches or cases, rulers, glue sticks, highlighters, assignment planners, calculators, USB flash drives and more. For a complete list of items by grades, visit www.voa-gny.org/what-goes-in-a-backpack. No red backpacks, please.

      Your donation helps students living in homeless or domestic violence shelters receive a backpack filled with school supplies in time for their first day of school. To learn more, visit www.voa-gny.org/operation-backpack.

      Each adult person that donates will receive a scratch-off lottery ticket as a way of saying “thanks” for their donation and support. For more information, please call 856-582-5292.
