TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Lansing partners with local organizations to support Operation Backpack



Lansing, Mich., July 20, 2015 — The summer season should be a fun and exciting time as children relax between school years and gear up to transition into their new grade level. This means stocking up on all the latest gadgets, backpacks, and trendy, kid-friendly binders and notebooks. Unfortunately, many children will head into the new school year without everyday classroom essentials critical to their learning and development.


As an effort to collect these essential school supplies, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Lansing is proud to partner with St. Vincent Catholic Charities and WILX-News 10 to serve as a drop-off location for these much needed items that will be donated to elementary and middle school-level children in time for the new school year:


  • Backpacks — school age
  • Three-ring Trapper Keepers that zip shut
  • Planners and folders (3-hole punched)
  • Spiral notebooks
  • Lined notebook paper
  • Pencil and pen holder (3-hole punched)
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Colored pencils or markers
  • Highlighters
  • Calculators
  • Glue sticks
  • Rulers
  • 3x5 cards


For nearly nine years, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is proud to support Operation Backpack in its effort to supply local children with back-to-school essentials. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Lansing also delivers all collection boxes to collection sites, then picks up and delivers items at the end of the drive.


Drop off school supplies to these locations, until August 18.
