Take Action: Operation Backpack Blitz

Posted at 10:29 AM, Aug 19, 2014

Today is the final day to donate a backpack full of school supplies to Operation Backpack Blitz.

NewsChannel 3 is taking action to help children get back to school with the tools they need to succeed.

The mission is called Operation Backpack Blitz.

Here's how you get results - buy a backpack and fill it with school supplies.

All the supplies will go to ForKids Virginia which serves homeless families and people who've transitioned into their own homes, but struggle financially.

You can drop off your backpacks or school supplies at any Southern Bank location this week.

And for each donation, you'll get a coupon for free chips and queso at Chili's.
