Volunteers of America presents "Christopher K's Operation Backpack" with Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics and 106.5 The End

Help children prepare for their education by donating school supplies July 10th through the 28th!

Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities return to school without the basic supplies they need.

With your help, Volunteers of America has been hosting the Operation Backpack® Campaign and has distributed thousands of new backpacks filled with school supplies to students in need throughout the greater Sacramento Area and beyond. This year we hope to continue equipping students and encourage them to stay in school! 

Starting July 10th until July 28th stop by any participating Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics location and drop off a donation of a backpack or school supplies to help a child in need prepare for their education. You can also join Christopher K at the Natomas (4670 Natomas Blvd Suite 100, Sacramento, CA) location this Saturday, July 22, from 11a-1p and make your donation right then and say hi to Chris!
