Before we know it school will be back in session. Jeff Tanchak was live at Walnut Wednesday talking about Operation Backpack with Volunteers of America and Union Home Mortgage. The Live Broadcast donation collections start Monday, 7/29 and runs through Friday, 8/2. We need your school supply and backpack donations! Becky Carlino, from Volunteers of America along with Christina Fagan, from Union Home Mortgage were on site to help promote this fantastic School Supply Donation Drive. Some teachers will start to get ready for school next week and are already worried about kids coming to school with enough school supplies. The more donations we can get the more kids we can help. Union Home Mortgage is a first time sponsor for the 19 News donation drive but has been a part of Operation Backpack for three years now. They are a great partner with Volunteers of America and are happy to do what they can to help kids.
