Operation Backpack

YMCA LogoWe are proud to join forces with the Vic Coppinger YMCA here in Pearland for this year’s Operation Backpack. We are a drop-off location and we would like to encourage you to pick up a backpack (or two) the next time you are in the store and stop by Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® and drop it off in our bin, located in our reception area. In addition to backpacks, the YMCA asks that you consider including a handwritten note of encouragement and place it inside the backpack. We would like to encourage you to consider donating school supplies as well. The YMCA of Greater Houston has compiled a list of suggested school supplies.
