Operation Backpack® USA

Thousands of homeless children go back to school without the basic supplies they need. Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack® campaigns are conducted across the country to provide school supplies and backpacks to children in need.

Our affiliates are gearing up and currently hosting drives for Operation Backpack® 2016! Continue to check back throughout July for information about a campaign near you!
