For 17 years, YMCA Operation Backpack has provided school supplies and backpacks for children in communities across the Houston area, filling them with hope for a brighter future as they start the school year. The children in our community need us now more than ever. Your investment provides children the opportunity to return to learning with the tools to be successful. The health and safety of our community is our priority. With that, we are focused on no-touch or low-touch interactions and are shifting YMCA Operation Backpack 2021 to an online donation drive. Funds raised will be used to purchase packaged school supplies and backpacks that will be distributed to children in need. You can donate now - August 6!
