Operation Backpack


Begins in 12 days 17 hrs 30 min

Our annual backpack drive for students pre-k – 12th grade. For the 2018-19 school year, Operation Backpack will benefit many of our Cypress Area Ministry partners. Our campus is committed to providing backpacks filled with school supplies for these families. As a reminder, clear backpacks are needed for students in Cy-Fair School District attending Middle School and High School this year, Elementary school can carry standard backpacks. Starting July 29 and running until Aug 19, you can drop off school supplies, backpacks and lunch boxes at the Cypress Campus Mon–Fri during office hours or Sunday mornings in the foyer.

Supplies List

In an effort to be more effective and excellent this year with the Backpack Drive we are going to be more specific with the supplies we are gathering. Our goal is to pre-pack all the backpacks with supplies so that the children will have more complete gifts. The lists are so expansive and each grade is specific on their needs – but if we can collect enough of the following we can stuff each backpack evenly and every child will go home with a GREAT start to their school supplies.
