Donate backpacks & school supplies for Hoosier kids
One of the most devastating consequences of living in poverty or experiencing homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. In addition to frequent school transfers and an unsettled home life, many children return to school without the basic supplies they need. On the first day of school, they look and feel different from their classmates.
At Volunteers of America of Indiana, we're working to give every child a chance to go back to school with confidence and pride. You can help through Operation Backpack®.
Want to help a specific child in need? Contact Kirsten Bush at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will assign you to a child in need.
How You Can Help
Host a Donation Drive
If you're really motivated to collect school supplies for children, consider putting on a donation drive at work, school, place of worship, or in your neighborhood. Use the supply list to guide the collection.
