About Indy BackPack Attack

Since 1999, Indy BackPack Attack has formed strategic community collaborations with Central Indiana organizations and businesses and has made it our mission to collect school supplies to provide children the tools they need to succeed in school. Indy BackPack Attack has partnered with the United Way of Central Indiana on school supply drives in the surrounding counties. For more information, please like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @BackPackAttack or click the link below.

Every Summer for 6 weeks Indy BackPack Attack encourages local businesses and organizations to collect school supplies. Once the supplies are collected they are dropped off at the IUPUI Surplus Warehouse where volunteers sort, count, and package them for delivery to local IPS and Mayor's Chartered Schools.

Since 1999, we have collected over 6 million school supplies and helped tens of thousands of students start the school year with the tools necessary to help them succeed.

Moving forward, we would like to raise enough supplies to help them when they come back from winter break as well. Teachers report that supplies are usually depleted in the classrooms by this time.

If you would like to donate, all donations can be dropped off at any Indiana Members Credit Union branch.
