  Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit – 3rd Annual Operation BACKpack Project

Presented by Richard Bratz, Direcor of Public information

The Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit has established a program to assist elementary school aged children in need with the necessities for school. Troopers are asking for help with any donations to fill each child’s back-pack with school supplies.

Troopers assigned to the Statewide Community Outreach Unit have initiated this program and are working with organizations in their communities to collect and donate school supplies for children in need. Donations can be taken to Headquarters in Dover or to any Troop statewide by anyone wishing to help. Each Troop will have a box in their lobby for supplies to be dropped off for the project.  The donations will be collected from July 10 to August 11, 2016 and the donations will be presented for the 2017-2018 school year, prior to school starting. A list of supplies needed for the students are listed below:

Backpacks,  No.2 pencils, Spiral notebooks, Washable Crayola Crayons box of 24, Large pink erasers, Pencil cases, Colored pencils, Washable markers, Loose Leaf Wide Ruled paper, highlighters, Composition Books, 3-Ring Binders, Plastic Folders with Pockets, Tissue Boxes, Hand Sanitizer.
