Greater Indianapolis

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 children in need throughout Central Indiana.

You can help kids become whatever they imagine and dream. 

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

The Central Indiana Operation Backpack® drive has ended, but you can donate online at the link below.


How to donate a backpack

  1. Donate through our Online Donation Form. Central Indiana is no longer taking In Kind donations of backpacks and school supplies. Thank you to everyone who participated. 
    Online shopping has ended.
