Operation Backpack is a program benefiting the Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County (fosteradoptive.org) by providing backpacks filled with school supplies. When children enter the foster system, they often have nothing to call their own. MVC has participated in Operation Backpack the last 2 years and it has been such a sweet partnership and connection. Our goal this year is to provide 85 filled backpacks.
