Backpack and School Supply Drive Underway in Brooklyn Park
The nonprofit Honored2Help is collecting new backpacks and school supplies for Brooklyn Park students.
This year, it’s hoping to collect more than 2,000 backpacks.
“We want to increase and try to get to 3,000 if we can. The more we get, the more we can serve the community,” said Honored2Help’s Scooter Draughn
Brooklyn Park drop-off sites are at the Community Activity Center, Zanewood Recreation Center and the Salvation Army. The collection runs from now until Aug. 15 and the backpacks will be distributed to Brooklyn Park students.
The nonprofit organization Honored2Help is active in several community events. They helped organize Brooklyn Park’s Juneteenth celebration and they conducted a toy drive at Christmas.
