What is Operation Backpack?
Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities return to school without the basic supplies they need.
With your help, Operation Backpack® is able to provide thousands of backpacks, grade specific school supplies, and a variety of support services to homeless, at-risk and foster children from Pre-school to High School levels throughout the Bay Area, Greater Sacramento Area, and Reno regions. Together, we are helping children learn and thrive in school, stay in school, and build a bright future.
Participate in Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack® and help children in need be prepared and excited for their first day of school!
