Help Us Fill Backpacks with Hope

This summer, we are preparing to help kids get back to school with full backpacks by supporting Operation Backpack through Volunteers of America Ohio and Indiana.

Nearly one in five children in the U.S. live below the federally defined poverty line and their families, who are balancing basic expenses such as utilities and rent or mortgages, too often, have nothing left over.

Through the month of July, we will be collecting supplies and monetary donations. But more than that, we are giving children hope, by providing an equal opportunity and confidence as they begin the new school year.

If you would like to give hope to a child in need, you can donate by dropping supplies off at our office or order supplies here and have them shipped directly to us! If you’d like to make a monetary donation, we accept Venmo and donations can be sent to our Marketing Director, Amy Karnes at Amy-Karnes. Our goal is to fill 50 backpacks; each full backpack costs approximately $50.
