St. Vincent Catholic Charities Operation Backpack
Presented by Delta Dental
Co-Chaired by Lupe Izzo & Brig Sorber.

Participate in Operation Backpack to help us reach our goal of 1,000 donated backpacks stuffed full of school supplies!

Operation Backpack helps to send children in-need back to school equipped with the necessary materials to learn. In addition to presenting sponsor Delta Dental and our co-chairs Lupe Izzo & Brig Sorber, we’d like to thank sponsors WILX TV-10, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, Capital Area District Libraries, and Buffalo Wild Wings.  We’d also like to thank community partners Capitol National Bank, RE/MAX Real Estate, Granger Construction, and Granger Waste Management.
