Back-to-School Backpack Assembly: “Teamwork makes the dream work!”

Written by: Joy-Nicole Smith, School Liaison Program Manager, GS-11 Department of the Air Force School Liaison Program

It is back-to-school season! This means it is a busy time for students, families, and our community. Over the next two weeks, I would like to highlight to Back-to-School Backpack effort. This week, I will begin with an incredible group of volunteers who were instrumental in making this happen! On July 31st, 2023, Minot AFB Airmen, Spouses, and community members packed backpacks with school supplies, information, and goodies for distribution.

The effort was seamless and exemplified the power of community involvement in ensuring quality educational experiences at Minot Air Force Base. A VERY special thank you to our 5th Bomb Wing and 91st Missile Wing Airmen, Spouses, and community members for packing 200+ Backpacks to jumpstart the school year! Next week, I will highlight the Back-to-School Backpack Distribution on August 4th! Stay tuned!
