The annual Pack-A-Backpack program collects school supplies and backpacks for children in the Argos, Bourbon, Bremen, Culver, LaVille, and Plymouth school districts. School supplies and backpacks are distributed to various school counselors. Families can request assistance when registering for school.
Getting kids ready for school is not a cheap venture. Besides paying for books, new clothes and shoes kids still need school supplies. FOP 195 wants all kids to go back to school with a new backpack so donations of backpacks are a primary concern. Many local businesses have some fantastic sales on the everyday supplies needed but backpacks are in high demand and costly.
If you would like to make a donation or need more information about our Pack-A-Backpack program, please contact us.
