Supply List & Registration Packet

Every backpack given to a child through Operation Backpack® is filled with supplies according to the child's grade. For example, high-schoolers get a dictionary, thesaurus and calculator along with all the other usual school supplies. The youngest children receive water colors, washable markers, hand sanitizer, tissues and all the supplies they need. Children who might be preparing to take geometry receive a protractor, compass and graphing paper. All backpacks and supplies are new.

If you would like to fill a backpack or organize an Operation Backpack®  drive - at your company, club, camp, school, or place of worship, please click on the button below to fill in and then submit the supply drive registration packet to us at

Please consider donating a filled backpack or two. If you have children of your own, consider engaging them in the process. Choose a grade, download the supply list and fill a backpack! Be sure to label it with the appropriate grade (click on printable supply checklists below) and if you are missing any supplies, please note that on the label so we can add them.

We are always short on certain supplies, and would particularly appreciate donations of academic planners, calculators, USBs and subject dividers.
