Operation Backpack® puts the backpacks in the children’s hands before they go to school,
so that on Day One they look and feel more like their classmates and less like a “homeless
kid.” We partner with the local Intermediate School District (ISD) to ensure that all children
in need receive their supplies needed to succeed. Everything is new. These children almost
never have new things– clothing is second hand, toys and books are scarce, food is what
parents can afford on a strictly limited budget. However, all the supplies are new, backpacks
are good quality, and they vary in color and design.
Eligible children are those in the homeless education program provided by their local Intermediate School District (ISD). With this partnership, we ensure that these are the children most critically
