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. It’s reported that 80% percent of the families in the Indianapolis Public Schools district (IPS) need help with basic school supplies. With the help of local organizations and businesses, Indy BackPack Attack has collected more than 3.5 million school supplies since 1999!
“We are so excited to work with the Fever and their fans for this school supply drive,” said Sara Griffin, co-chair of Indy Backpack Attack. “This collection event will help us in our effort to provide children the tools they need to be excited about their learning and successful in studies.”
