Operation Backpack 2009 was a great success!  Hosting the event was East Coast Believers Church in Casselberry Florida. Along with the host, many merchants including Big League Haircuts for Men and Boys, Target, WalMart, Tijuana Flats, Del Taco of Oviedo, Einstein Bagels, and many more local Orlando Merchants that participated, and made provision of great gift cards that had value into the hundreds of dollars to make the event a success.
 
The number of children that received backbpacks filled with school supplies reached 1250 local students who without cooperation from all levels of businesses and individuals would not have been one of the most successful organized events of Central Florida area this year.
 
With average cost of $80 per child to prepare and have the school supplies that each child needs, the cost to a family of  two or three can easily weigh in over $150.00. Here in Central Florida, ECBC, with help from community merchants and online merchants, are striving together every year to fill this financial gap.  Preparations for 2010 are already underway!
