Operation Backpack

You Can Inspire Educational Success!  

By supporting Operation Backpack you can make so many positive things possible for a local child in need. Back to school time should be an exciting time for every child. Unfortunately, some children will go back to school without the supplies they need for success. Your involvement can make a difference for children and teens living in one of our safe housing locations or for families struggling with poverty. 

You can help to send a child back to school feeling confident and ready for success in the classroom by making a monetary donation or in-kind donation of a new backpack and/or new school supplies. Donate online or mail donations to Operation Backpack, 584 Benson Street, Camden, NJ 08103.

Interested in starting a community drive at your church, business, or school? Email Kelsey Sanderson or call 856.964.1990 x110 for information on how to get started.
