Backpack Pick-Up & Veteran Resource Event

About the Event

United Way of Broward County's MISSION UNITED is distributing approximately 500 backpacks* filled with school supplies to families of active military and veterans. During the event we will have a resource fair with live music and family activities. 

Registration and proof of military service is required.

Also, please bring your VA ID card and VA Determination letter to receive your FREE lifetime Parks Pass and other great benefits. 

Each backpack contains an assortment of common school supplies. Contents may vary slightly, but every effort is made to make all backpacks as similar as possible. Each backpack has an approximate $35 retail value.
