Arizona Cardinals players and cheerleaders were in the West Valley passing out backpacks and school supplies to hundreds of area children as part of “Operation Backpack.”

It’s that time of year. West Valley schools open as early as Monday in the Glendale Elementary School District.

Children in Peoria Unified School District and Glendale Union High School District head back to classes on Aug. 9. In Deer Valley Unified School District, the first day of school is Aug. 16.

School children on July 24 lined up at Covenant International Church, 8807 N. 61st Ave., to pick out just the right supplies.

Hope Endures, a Glendale-based non-profit, has provided back-to-school supplies to families in need for 12 years.

They expected to pass out about 2,000 backpacks filled with supplies and 1,000 pairs of shoes and socks.
