Another Successful Operation Backpack for McDowell County

For their third year, Robertson Packaging Supply, Inc. has successfully supported Operation Backpack and McDowell County Schools.

Robertson Packaging Supply, Inc., a local distributor for industrial packaging, shipping, and janitorial supplies, has been involved in supporting Operation Backpack for three years. This year, owners Brandon and Sarah Whitson were thrilled to donate $1000 in supplies to McDowell County Schools. Supplies included: toothpaste and toothbrushes; 14 cases of disinfectant wipes; 15 cases of Kleenex; scissors; glue; dry erase products; notebooks; pencil pouches; and much more. The McDowell Chamber of Commerce donated $250 to help this cause.

Operation Backpack's goal is to provide K-12 underserved McDowell County Schools students with a new backpack and school supplies each year. While supplies are usually distributed at the start of the school year, Operation Backpack makes these supplies available year-round as needed.
