Operation Backpack

Operation Backpack is our initiative to stand in the gap for our region’s most vulnerable children. Your donations help us provide backpacks, school supplies and funding for academic enrichment to more than 2,000 homeless and underprivileged children in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. Together, we can help ensure these children achieve success despite their circumstances.
