Join us for Operation Back to School 2023!

Operation Back to School is the Carole Robertson Center for Learning’s annual back-to-school supply drive. On average, school supplies can cost anywhere from $700-1200 per school year, depending on the grade level. With your support, we can provide more than 500 children and youth with the essentials needed for a successful start to the school year.

By providing new school supplies to children, the Carole Robertson Center is helping every child show up to the first day of school excited and ready to learn. We’re committed to setting our children up for success and giving our community’s families the gift of one less thing to worry about. Help us make this happen!
