On Wednesday, August 31, ArcelorMittal Hamilton East and Hamilton Steel Workers stuffed 1,000 backpacks for students in need across the city.  The bags were filled with necessary supplies to start the school year off right. The backpacks were then given to St. Matthew’s House to distribute throughout Hamilton. By Friday, September 2 St. Matthew’s House had given away 940 backpacks. The remaining 60 bags were given to local schools on the mountain and downtown. This was the 7th year for Operation Backpack. In 2010, 92 bags were handed out by ArcelorMittal Hamilton East.
