Support Operation Backpack®

How to Get Involved:

DONATE.
You're one click away — make a donation and we'll do the shopping, leveraging economies of scale, so your contribution will make a significant difference in our ability to give every child living in a New York City homeless or domestic violence shelter who needs one, a backpack.

FILL A BACKPACK. 
During our public drive, which runs from July 8 to August 2, we encourage you to fill a backpack with the grade-specific supplies on our lists. You can drop your backpack(s) off at any of our Official Drop Locations, which are now accepting donations.

FUNDRAISE.
Help us purchase the supplies we need by fundraising for us on CrowdRise. Enlist your social network to help us reach our goal.

ORGANIZE.
Help us spread the word about Operation Backpack®.

SPONSOR.
Email us to let us know you'd like to be involved in this year's campaign.
