The Operation Backpack For Endangered Children Endowment Fund was established through the Community Foundation in 2011 by Karen Oseland Hayhoe.
"I'm just grateful that through the Foundation, the children will always be taken care of even after I'm gone," says Karen.
Grants are used by Chippewa County authorities to purchase items to hand out to children who are taken from their homes during the emergency time of removal.
