Operation Backpack helps to send children in-need back to school equipped with the necessary materials to learn. This year we are pleased to announce our co-chairs Brig Sorber, Two Men & A Truck Executive Chairman, and Goran Jurkovic, Delta Dental Chief Operating Officer, are working with Andy Provenzano, WILX News 10 Meteorologist, in conjunction with our community partners. Backpacks and school supplies are collected throughout the Greater Lansing Area during July and August and are ultimately distributed to STVCC children at the end of August. Learn more at stvcc.org/operation-backpack.
The “Be An Angel” Holiday Giving Drive is one of our largest donation drives of the year. During the drive, members of the community can pickup “Be An Angel” tags at Holiday Giving Trees at the Lansing Mall and Meridian Mall, or at participating store locations in the Eastwood Towne Center. Each gift tag contains information on a specific item to be purchased and donated, which will go to the clients of St. Vincent Catholic Charities. In addition to the gift tags, options to “Adopt a Child,” or to “Adopt a Family” are available, which allow individuals or organizations to purchase specific items that are identified on the child’s or family’s wish list. The Holiday Giving campaign runs during November and December. Learn more at stvcc.org/holiday-giving.
