Operation Butte Backpack


Hazel Fischer Parents Club would like to assist approximately 300 children in our community affected by the recent #ButteFire. Our Goal is to provide a new backpack filled with school supplies on or before their first day returning to school!
Our focus will be on the schools hardest hit here in Calaveras County, and if we are fortunate enough to receive an excess, we would like to donate this to the children affected by the Valley Fire.

Supplies requested:

NEW Backpacks
Lined Paper
No. 2 Pencils
Pencil Box
Colored Pencils
Glue Sticks
Pencil Sharpener
Pocket folders
Composition Notebook
Hazel Fischer Parents Club is a non-profit organization with a tax ID available for your tax write off.

UPDATE – Drop off locations and other Info.
PLEASE SHARE THIS: Tonight ONLY (9/18/15), there is a Farmer’s Market in Angels Camp and there will be a table with volunteer, Kacy, ready to accept donations for us (New backpacks/school supplies/children and teen socks and underwear donations).

NOTE: We would like to try to gather AS MANY Backpacks as we can by Sunday afternoon/evening, because we need to get everything ready for Monday morning when some of the schools are back in session!

Thank you to EVERYONE, far and wide for all of your generosity!
