Eagle i: ‘Supplies for Success’

The YMCA’s new campaign to help ensure children have a successful school year

Article Highlights

  • With the current state of the economy, many parents just don’t have the money to buy the supplies their kids need to start the school year.
  • The Greater Marco YMCA wants to help those families help their kids have a successful year.

Many of us remember going to the store with our parents and picking out brand new backpacks and supplies for the new school year. With the current state of the economy, many parents just don’t have the money to buy the supplies their kids need to start the school year. That can be disheartening to the parent, but it can also be damaging to the child.

The Greater Marco YMCA wants to help those families help their kids have a successful year. Operation Backpack is the Greater Marco YMCA’s drive to ensure that each child in need in our service area has the necessary supplies to start the school year.

We are asking for your help. Please consider purchasing supplies that a child could use at school (A list of supplies needed is posted at the Greater Marco YMCA Customer Service desk) and drop them in the drop box provided or

make a monetary donation; $30 will provide one child the necessary supplies for a successful new school year.

Your generosity will help ensure our children will have the necessary supplies for success this school year.
