You can build a brighter future for children by donating to Operation Backpack®. A new backpack filled with school supplies empowers every child to succeed. By giving, you can help a child in need in your community reach their full potential, and thrive.

When you donate a new backpack and supplies, you help eliminate this financial hurdle for families and help prepare kids in need with the tools they need to succeed in school.

It’s easy to do. Grab some friends, or your company, church, club, or family and organize a backpack drive. All the tools you need are in our how-to guide. Teaming up helps even more children in need.

Backpacks empower children to suceed

A new backpack and school supplies empowers and gives confidence to children in need. Unfortunately, not all of their families can afford school supplies. Every child deserves to be ready for their first day of school with confidence. YOU can help!
