Trading Spaces and Broadway star Paige Davis, together with Spider-Man of Broadway’s Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark and many other heroic volunteers, will participate in Operation Backpack’s “Sort Day” on Thursday, August 15.

Operation Backpack is a program of Volunteers of America that fills thousands of brand-new donated backpacks with school supplies for homeless children to ensure they can begin school prepared to learn and excel. VOA’s goal is to distribute 15,000 backpacks.

Davis has been working with Operation Backpack for nearly a decade. To read more about her history with the program, read TheaterMania’s interview here.
