Let’s equip our local students for the first day of school, and the whole year.
When: July 16 – August 1
Many students in our community need help filling a backpack to ensure success during the school year. Every child should have access to the tools and supplies they need! This summer VEAP will collect and sort school supplies and then distribute to the schools.
Host a School Supply Drive – at your office, in your neighborhood, or at your faith community
