My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

Children's Museum "Backpack Attack"

Back-to-School Supply Drive- Now – July 28

It is estimated that up to 78% of IPS students start the school year with inadequate school supplies – or none at all, according to the United Way. As children prepare to return to school this fall, the need for proper school supplies becomes a critical issue in many families already struggling to meet basic needs.

Please join The Children's Museum of Indianapolis in supporting the 7th annual Back Pack Attack by donating a new school supply when you visit the museum before July 28.

Supplies Needed:
Backpacks, Erasers, Rulers, Crayons, Art Boxes, Safety Scissors, Glue Sticks, Pencil Sharpeners, Ink pens, Pencils, Colored pencils, Notebook paper, Pocket folders, Calculators, Markers, Spiral Notebooks

A donation bin is available in the museum's Welcome Center. School supplies will be given to Indianapolis Public Schools through Bridges to Success, an initiative of the United Way. Supplies will also be distributed to underserved families at the museum's Back Pack Attack Festival on Aug. 10.

Thank you for helping ensure that children in our community have the right tools for success! Children who donate school supplies at the museum will receive a special participation sticker.

Interested in volunteering? With so many supplies to distribute, volunteers are needed to help sort and count school supplies, from July 31 – Aug. 10. More information is available at this link.
