The USO-Metro will be hosting Operation Back to School at two locations in Northern Virginia.
On Saturday August 4th between 11:00a.m. and 1:00p.m. you can bring the kids and get them excited to return to school! The kids will have the opportunity to participate in many activities that will get them ready to learn! These activities will involve such subjects as math, science, reading ,art and history in the hopes of getting them revved up about returning to the classroom.
Once the kids are done with “class” they will then receive a backpack loaded with new school supplies. That is a win for both kids and parents. Thanks to these great sponsors Google, Dyn Corp International, BAE Systems and HP/AMD for donating to such a great cause. A big thank you to the USO-Metro for having this amazing event, buying all those school supplies and back packs can be pricey especially for those of us with more than one child.
