Operation Backpack®

For years, the Ulster County Board of REALTORS® Community Services Committee has provided critical community service through its annual Operation Backpack® program, organizing throughout Ulster County to collect backpacks, books, writing utensils and other school supplies for the region’s homeless youth population.

Operation Backpack® relies 100% on support from the community and, each year, provides new backpacks filled with grade-specific school supplies to homeless children throughout the county.
