Help Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation “CRAM THE VAN” With School Supplies

The Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation (OPSF) will be participating in the United Way of Okaloosa-Walton Counties CRAM THE VAN School Supply Drive in an effort to provide needed school supplies to local children for the 2015 – 2016 school year.

Plan now to shop at Walmart and/or Publix every Saturday from now through August 8th from 10am to 4pm to donate school supplies to help “CRAM THE VAN”. It is easy…just purchase school supplies for your children and/or a little extra for others. Drop them in the CRAM THE VAN or hand them to the Cram the Van volunteers at the store entrances.

A special thank you to the United Way of Okaloosa-Walton Counties, Publix in Crestview plus the Ft Walton, Destin, Niceville, and Crestview Wal-Mart Stores for supporting CRAM THE VAN!

Look for the OPSF Volunteers and the United Way vans in the parking lots and help us “CRAM THE VAN and help kids succeed.
