Operation Backpack® is Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas' initiative to fill the gap for our region’s most vulnerable children. The Mall in Columbia is a proud partner ensuring low-income children have the supplies and support they need to start the school year off strong!
From July 10th – August 21st, Volunteers of America staff and volunteers will be at The Mall in Columbia collecting backpacks and supplies from the community. You can help make a difference in the life of a student in need by dropping by with your backpack and school supply donations!
Donated items will be distributed to low-income children in our human services programs and to partnering schools.
