The Forest Grove School District sponsors an annual event called Operation School Supplies where they collect backpacks and school supplies for students whose families can’t afford to purchase them. They get a tremendous response every year and have two work parties to put everything together. They are looking for volunteers to help at the work parties.
The work parties will be on these dates:
- Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon at Taylor Way Warehouse, 2701 Taylor Way (next to the National Guard Armory — Sort and organize all of the donations
- Thursday, Aug. 21 from 9 a.m. to noon at Taylor Way Warehouse – Fill the backpacks with the supplies appropriate for the various age levels
