United Way and Cradles to Crayons’ Backpack-A-Thon

Each year United Way and Cradles to Crayons volunteers collect and stuff thousands of backpacks with school supplies for children across our region to begin school ready to learn. This year, we will stuff and distribute 30,000 backpacks to area children in need to help them start school ready to learn.
