Posted: Updated:
(myFOXDetroit.com) -

Kids love picking out new school supplies. But unfortunately these hard economic times mean some kids won't get the school supplies they deserve. FOX 2 is teaming up with 96.3 WDVD and Volunteers of America for Operation Backpack. We're stuffing buses with supplies to ensure every child is prepared for the new school year.

Drop-off between Thursday, August 2nd – Sunday, August 5th.

  • Thursday/Friday: 8:00am-7:00pm
  • Saturday: 9:00am-7:00pm
  • Sunday: 9:00am-6:00pm

There are three drop-off locations:

  • Sterling Heights: Lakeside Mall (Hall Rd, east of Schoenherr) Bus is located in the parking lot on the south side of the mall near the food court entrance. 
  • Royal Oak: Kroger (Woodward Ave. & 13 Mile Rd.) Bus is located in Kroger parking lot on southwest corner.
  • Taylor: Southland Center (Eureka Rd, between Racho Blvd. and Pardee Rd.) Bus is located in the Southland Center parking lot on Eureka Road

Last year we collected 1,200 supply-filled backpacks; let's exceed that this year - don't miss the bus!
