Get Involved!

 Operation Impact is going to new heights in launching their first Backpacks for a Cause Initiative. We are excited  to empower and equip students with the right school supplies and inspiration  to start their 2021 year on the right foot.

We will be hosting a drive to donate pre-stuffed backpacks with school supplies. All you have to do is purchase either a backpack (Mesh or Clear ONLY please) and fill with school supply needs from the list to the right. Feel free to  add any other items if you wish! Approximately every $30 will help one child have a pre-stuffed backpack for their upcoming school year. Our Goal is to prepare 1,200 Children across the United States for school! Each location is partnering with select schools and shelters within their community. Connect with the team lead for drop off locations listed in the chart below for questions.

If you cannot attend a drop off location in person, there are two ways you can still participate throught generosity. 

1) Consider donating by clicking the link below. Funds collected will be utilized for all initiatives and will not be restricted. Please note we are not able to take any mail-ins.

2) Give  your own school supplies to a local school or shelter in your neighborhood and share your impact story with us no matter where you are! Send photos and how many backpacks collected
