The kids in our community need you!

Let’s join together to help every child start their school year ready to chase their dreams and take on the world!

When you join Operation Backpack® you’ll give homeless and at-risk children in your community hope. This kind of hope is a new backpack filled with school supplies.

This is confidence. This is how we help give equal opportunity to all children.

Did you know families in need can’t afford a backpack and school supplies for their children? It’s last on the list when they are balancing all of their basic needs expenses, like utilities, mortgages, rent and so on.

On average, school supplies and fees costs from $696 to $1,300 per child. (Source: National Retail Federation).

Savio Families Go Back to School

Having a new outfit for the first day of school can give a student the confidence that they need to start a successful year. When families are working hard to overcome mental and behavioral health challenges, something like new clothes might not be the highest priority. 

The excitement that comes with picking out an outfit the night before your first day of school is a feeling that is universal. And the concern for how that outfit will affect your social standing can lead to major stress. This seemingly small thing can make such a huge difference in a child's confidence. 

You can help students be prepared to put their best foot forward walking into a new school year.

Back to School Drive

This moment is critical. Over the next few weeks, thousands of students in the Bay Area will be returning to a “new normal”, facing the challenges of a pandemic all the while balancing a pursuit of academic success and opportunity.

Many families in the neighboring regions around Stanford have disproportionately endured significant income loss as a result of the pandemic. As clinic and community partners work to ease some of the uncertainty of this new stage, we hope to support students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds with the materials they need to pave their own path of success.
