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!

Since 2004, Operation Backpack has been helping 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 and RE/MAX Real Estate.
