MICOP’s Backpack Drive 2019: 600 backpacks for indigenous students!
July 5, 2019 @ 9:00 am - July 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
MICOP is collecting monetary donations and new backpacks to distribute to at least 600 children this year on August 2nd. Each year the children and their parents look forward to this distribution and are so grateful for the generous donations that allow them to start the school year with a new backpack. It means everything to them to be prepared for that exciting first day of school.
Many of the children we outfit with backpacks will be going into kindergarten through 12th grade. As a suggestion, they love character backpacks and whatever is popular in the stores for the 4 to 17-year-old age group. The middle school and high school students love Jansport backpacks or something similar to that. We are grateful for ALL donations! We will be distributing backpacks Friday August 2nd from 1 PM to 6 PM in the MICOP parking lot if you would like to join us in handing out backpacks.
Donations of backpacks may be dropped off at the MICOP office at 520 West 5th St., Suite B or Suite G, between 9:30 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Monetary donations may be made on our website at: http://mixteco.org/donate/ Please select “Backpack Campaign” on the drop down menu. You may also send a donation check to: MICOP, PO Box 20543, Oxnard, CA 93034.
The MICOP community is grateful to you for partnering with us each year to ensure that our children start the school year ready to learn and equipped with new a new backpack to kick-off the school year!
