Operation Backpack drive sets local students up for success

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The 13th annual Operation Backpack school supply drive is just around the corner. Cissa Madero with the YMCA of Greater Houston and Camren Heard, an 11-year old recipient of a backpack and school supplies, discuss the program's impact.

According to Madero, the drive can actually boost youngsters' self-esteem because they are able to start school with all the classroom tools they need to do their best work.



Operation Backpack is scheduled for Aug. 4 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the ABC13 studios at 3310 Bissonnet.
