Annual Backpack Campaign

Salvation Army logo redEach year, the Staff Advisory Council partners with other local colleges and universities to collect school supplies. The supplies are then delivered to the Salvation Army, where volunteers - including Creighton staff - will fill backpacks with the supplies. The Salvation Army hands out the backpacks to Metro area kids in need just before school starts in the fall.

April 19 through June 17, Staff Advisory Council is collecting donations of cash or checks (made out to CU Staff Advisory Council) to purchase items in bulk for the backpacks. Please take your donations to the SAC representative nearest to your office.
