The Frank Clark Family Foundation is now a major sponsor of Operation Backpack, joining the annual event created by Fifth District Councilwoman Ryana Parks-Shaw. Operation Backpack equips students as they return to school by providing free backpacks, school supplies, tablets and food.
The drive-through event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 6th, at Swope Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will also include free Wi-Fi hotspot giveaways.
Councilmember Parks-Shaw believes it is important that our children are given all the tools necessary to be safe, healthy, and successful students whether they are learning in a classroom or online.
