Help All Kids Reach for the Stars

Operation Backpack® is a Volunteers of America signature program that helps local kids reach their full potential and thrive as they start the school year. Community members like you rally together to donate backpacks and school supplies to give kids the confidence and tools they need to succeed and dream big.

Do you want to help kids in your community head back to school feeling happy, confident, and ready to succeed?

So do we! But we need your help. And so do the kids in your neighborhood.

This is the moment you can reach right into the heart of your community and give ALL kids the tools they need to reach for the stars.

You can share a package of freshly sharpened pencils, so they can solve problems.
You can offer a rainbow of crayons and markers, so they can draw their dreams.
And you can give them a backpack to carry their hopes wherever they go.

“Many of our students do not have the necessary school supplies when heading back to school each year, but receiving brand new backpacks, pencils, and notebooks really invigorates our kids to feel confident and excited to return. We are so grateful and hope to continue the partnership for many years to come!”

Austin Schiff, VP of Development, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati
