Helping kids in need succeed

Operation Backpack® is Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas' initiative to fill the gap for our region’s most vulnerable children. The Gallery at Harborplace is a proud partner ensuring low-income children have the supplies and support they need to start the school year off strong!

From July 10th – August 28th, Volunteers of America staff and volunteers will be at The Gallery at Harborplace collecting backpacks and supplies from the community. You can help make a difference in the life of a student in need by dropping by with your backpack and school supply donations!

Donated items will be distributed to low-income children in our human services programs and to partnering schools.
