INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An initiative to get school supplies to Indianapolis students kicked off on Monday.
Participating agencies and businesses were able to pick up materials needed to promote Backpack Attack. The materials also help the businesses collect donations.
The school supplies go to students whose families may not otherwise be able to afford supplies. Because so many school districts have balanced calendars now, Indy Backpack Attack tries to collect supplies by July 18. Then, the supplies are dispersed.
To find participating businesses where you can make a donation, or to make a monetary donation, visit Backpack Attack’s website.
