Operation Backpack®

Operation Backpack®

Thanks to caring supporters, those who donated backpacks and supplies, sponsors and so many more individuals, partners and volunteers we have successfully completed our 2022 Operation Backpack® campaign. Because of your generosity, we raised

$39,400 as well as collected backpacks and supplies valued at $18,800.


Operation Backpack® is our initiative to fill in the gap for our region’s most vulnerable children. Your donations provided backpacks, school supplies, school uniforms and funding for academic enrichment to more than 2,500 homeless and underprivileged children in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. 

Supplies were provided to students from low-income families in our programs as well as partnering Title 1 schools in the DMV area. To learn more about our family-based programs, click the button below.

    Donate To Our Academic Enrichment Fund

    This year, for the first time in our 12 year history of Operation Backpack®, we added Academic Enrichment to our campaign. Although backpacks, supplies and school uniforms are vital for a child to start the school year off prepared, we need to support that child throughout the entire school year. This is how you can help.
