Operation Backpack

Operation Backpack

Operation Backpack is an initiative of United Way of the Lowcountry Women United, providing local students in need with backpacks full of school supplies and uniform shirts to start school.  Women United works with school social workers to identify students in need who are not served by another agency to help fill the gap.  Operation Backpack helped more than 600 students this past school year throughout Beaufort and Jasper counties. This year, the program is expanding to help more local students.  Women United is collecting the following school supplies as well as monetary donations. School supplies can be dropped off at United Way of the Lowcountry offices in Beaufort and Bluffton.

Monetary donations can be made online at http://igfn.us/vf/BACKPACK2018 .

Checks can be made out to United Way of the Lowcountry with “Operation Backpack” in the memo and sent to the following address:

United Way of the Lowcountry  P.O. Box 202  Beaufort, SC 29901
