Operation Troopers Have Your Backpack

Posted on 08-11-2023

The Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit’s annual program to assist elementary school-aged children in need with the necessities for school is back! Troopers are asking for help with donations to fill each child’s backpack with school supplies.   Operation Troopers Have Your Backpack works with local communities and organizations to collect and donate school supplies for children in need.  

Donations can be taken to any Troop or Delaware State Police Federal Credit Union locations
by anyone wishing to help. Each location will have a box for supplies to be dropped off. The donations will be collected now until August 21, 2023, and will be distributed at the start of the school year.  

The supplies needed for the students are:
No. 2 Pencils
24-Count Crayons
Spiral Notebooks
Large Pink
Colored Pencils
Washable Markers
3-Ring Binders
Loose Leaf Wide Ruled Paper
Composition Books
Box of Tissues

Please help us give the students these essential supplies for another successful school year!
