From 50 backpacks in 2011 to now 1500+ backpacks in 2021, we could not be more excited to   celebrate our 10th year of Backpack of Hope! We would love for all of you to celebrate with us on December 17th, 2021! See our 'Volunteers' page for more information! 

"2 Corinthians 9:7"

You must decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a cheerful giver."

We are celebrating our 10th year of backpacks of Hope!

​Trust in the Lord with

all your heart.
Paying it forward is about unconditional love for others.

It can be as simple as a shared smile, listening, or giving a hand up.


In Memory of John "Zachery" Septer 

Founder of Backpacks Of Hope

Co-Founders of Backpacks of Hope

Hope in Action

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard.  We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and feed.

Our night of giving will be December 17th, 2021 at the Rescue Mission in Fort Wayne, IN. Backpacks will be given out to men, women, and children. See our volunteers or needs list page, if you are interested in being a part of this event!
