Official 2019 Drop-Off Locations

Official Operation Backpack® Drop Locations throughout the city (and the surrounding area) make it convenient to donate a new backpack full of school supplies. If you would like more information on becoming an official 2019 Operation Backpack® Drop Location, please contact Andrew Zibell.

If you have a bulk donation of backpacks to make (10 or more), please contact Andrew Zibell instead of going to a drop location.

We thank the many companies and community organizations who participate as Drop Locations, serving an integral role in the success of this annual campaign. This year, the NYPD Transit Police are also offering several drop dates and locations in subway stations throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx. View the NYPD Transit Drop-off dates.

The Drop Locations listed below are accepting donations through Friday, August 2.
