Operation Backpack® 2014


Operation Backpack® officially kicks off on July 21 and runs through August 12. 

Help us collect backpacks for the thousands of Ohio children in need.

Homeless children face many challenges and tremendous stigmatization; as a result, less than 25% graduate from high school. Being prepared with a new backpack and school supplies boosts a child's self-esteem and helps him feel like a regular kid. For the eighth year, Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio is collecting new backpacks and supplies to be distributed to local children in need. Through Operation Backpack®, Volunteers of America also provides a variety of support services to homeless children in our after-school and summer program.
