Greater Cincinnati & Dayton

Operation Backpack

Many children return to school without the basic supplies they need. You can give a child hope to start the school year off right through Operation Backpack®.

With your help, new backpacks and school supplies are collected and given to homeless and at-risk children throughout Greater Cincinnati & Dayton.

You can help kids become whatever they imagine and dream.

You are a dream maker. You give a child hope.

Cincinnati & Dayton Operation Backpack® is July through August 9, 2021.
