School will be starting soon, and that means it is time for operation backpack.
 
As Chad Spencer stated in his recent email to club members:
 
"We supports the Greater Houston YMCA's Operation backpack by providing backpacks stuffed with school supplies that will be given to kids before the start of the school year.
 
1) Volunteer to help stuff backpacks on August 8th, 10AM at Texas Citizens Bank in West U.
2)  Make a financial contribution which we will use to buy supplies
3) Bring either a fully stuffed backpack or any of the below items the club meeting August 6th
 

Chad Spencer will have a BIG box at the club meeting Thursday for you to put supplies in. Our biggest need right now is backpacks.
