YMCA Operation Backpack 2018 Kickoff Event Recap

There is nothing like the joy on a child's face when they show up with a fresh notebook and crayons in tow for the first day of school, ready to take on any challenge. The YMCA of Greater Houston aims to equip future leaders with the supplies they need to succeed through YMCA Operation Backpack.

Our kickoff event at the Houston Texans YMCA (Tuesday, July 10, 2018), marks the beginning of our goal to impact the lives of 120,000 Houston-area students. From now until August 10, drop off your donation at your local Y, visit an H-E-B store or click here to make a donation.
