The Torrance Salvation Army is still looking for donations for Operation Backpack, an initiative that benefits families in need as they prepare their youth to return to school for a new academic year.

They are looking for donations of money, backpacks, notebooks, lined paper, folders, markers, sharpeners and three-ring binders. Their goal is to collect 50 backpacks.

The donation deadline has been extended to July 28.

The Operation Backpack distribution will take place at the Stillman Sawyer Family Service Center in Harbor City. Many of the families who are recipients of the backpacks are from Torrance.

To make a donation, call (310) 370-4515, ext. 101.
