Each year through YMCA Operation Backpack, we strive to collect enough backpacks and school supplies to reach as many children as possible. This year, we hope to provide over 120,000 students with backpacks full of school supplies for the start of the school year.

A new school year can be stressful for children and their families and starting the year without adequate supplies only adds to the stress. We are asking you to help us make the first day of school a positive one. By making a donation to YMCA Operation Backpack, you are making an investment in the lives of our children.

If you have more questions or need further assistance, please contact Marie Arcos at ymcaoperationbackpac@ymcahouston.org.
