It’s time to give back by giving pack! Join Volunteers of America of Illinois for our 6th Annual Operation Backpack!
Did you know that there were over 15,000 homeless children in Chicago Public Schools last year?
Life can be very difficult and often disappointing for kids who are homeless who usually have to do without even the most basic necessities that some children can take for granted – like new school supplies at the beginning of a school year. This is your opportunity to support a child in need so they can feel prepared for the first day of school.
A donation of $25.00 will cover the cost of a backpack and school supplies. Packs will go to the hundreds of kids in our foster care program, as well as students at the Morton School of Excellence in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.
Please help us ensure that each child in Chicago is fully supported in their back-to-school adventure this fall!
