Operation Backpack

Operation Backpack logo

Operation Backpack is a vital resource for the 6,500 homeless children in Stanislaus County who go back to school each year without any school supplies.  With foreclosures, evictions, layoffs, furloughs and unemployment affecting our community, the homeless student population has grown.  Your contribution will benefit our homeless students. 

Making a difference is as easy as:

 A  Download a grade-specific school supply list

 B  Purchase a new backpack and fill it with school supplies. (Please no blue or red backpacks.)

 C  Bring the filled backpack to one of the drop-off locations between July 1 and July 31
