Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get involved with the Indy BackPack Attack?
At Indy BackPack Attack, we incorporate hundreds of local organizations to raise school supplies each year. To get involved, you can register to be a donor or a collection site, or you can volunteer your time at our warehouse. We are grateful from all of the support we receive from our community. They are essential to our success.
My child attends IPS or a Mayor's Charter School. How do I get supplies?
Once we have received and organized all donations, we then donate them to local school social workers. This could range from your schools counselor to PIE. Contact your school for more information.
Where do your donations go?
All donations made to the Indy BackPack Attack are given to the Indianapolis Public Schools and Mayor's Charter Schools.
My child does NOT attend IPS or a Mayor's Charter School. How do I get supplies?
Unfortunately, due to the high population and needs of the IPS and Mayor's Charter Schools the Indy BackPack Attack only donates to these schools. If your child is outside of our foundations range...don't panic! There are many other school supplies drives throughout the state. We keep them up to date on our "Dates & Events" page. You can also contact your local United Way or school to find out more.
I am not a part of an organization participating in the BackPack Attack, can I still donate, and how?
Yes! You can make any type of donation you have at any local Indiana Members Credit Union Branch or any Indianapolis based Donatos Pizza.
