Children’s Aid, Inc. is currently conducting our annual “Supplies for Success” Drive in support of our Operation Backpack Program in Calvert County. This year, Operation Backpack will be providing more than 250 local children with the school supplies they need to succeed in the new school year.
If you would like to donate school supplies to this effort, please consider the following:
Backpacks (15” H or larger), composition books, pencils, Crayola crayons (24 count), spiral notebooks, college-ruled filler paper, highlighters, colored pencils and glue sticks. All donations should be new and unopened.
School supply donations with be accepted through August 15, 2018, at several businesses throughout the county. Prince Frederick donation sites include the Black Belt Academy, Movement Mortgage and World Gym. Donations are being accepted in the northern end of the county at Gentle Family Dentistry (Dunkirk) and Tax Depot and World Gym (both in Owings) and in the southern end of the county at the World Gym Express in Lusby.
