2016 Cram the Van is a Huge Success!

Eight Cram the Van School Supply drives conducted over five Saturdays in July brought in 5,361 pounds of school supplies for Okaloosa students! 

As an agency of the United Way, the Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation was assigned to the Crestview, Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Niceville Wal-Mart Stores.  Foundation and school personnel, parents and students distributed school supply lists and asked shoppers to “Help us Cram the Van!” 

Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation Executive Director, Henry Kelley, said “Education is important to Okaloosa Countians, and we thank them for their generosity and support of our students.”
