Fill A Backpack
Supply Checklists and Backpack Labels:
- Grades 9-12
- Grades 5-8
- Grades 1-4
- Pre-K and Kindergarten
Every backpack given to a child through Operation Backpack is filled with supplies according to the child's grade. For example, high-schoolers get a dictionary, thesaurus and calculator along with all the other usual school supplies. The youngest children receive water colors, washable markers, tissues and all the supplies they need. Children who might be preparing to take geometry receive a protractor, compass and graphing paper. All backpacks and supplies are new.
Please consider donating a filled backpack
or two. If you have children of your own, consider engaging them in the process.
Choose a grade, download the supply list and fill a backpack! Be sure
to label it with the appropriate grade (click on printable supply checklists and labels above) and if you are missing any supplies,
please note that on the label so we can add them. Drop-off information is available at www.operationbackpacknyc.org.
We are always short on certain
supplies, and would particularly appreciate donations of academic planners,
calculators, USBs and subject dividers.
If you would like to also organize an Operation Backpack drive - at your
company, club, camp, school, or place of worship, please contact us.
