Making a Difference for Indiana Students, One Backpack at a Time

Our goal at Hensley Legal Group has always been to make a difference in the lives of injured and disabled Hoosiers. Since 2021 we’ve partnered with IPS to provide over 15,000 backpacks & school supplies to make a difference in the lives of students.  But we aren’t stopping there.  On Friday, July 14th and Saturday, July 15th, 2023 we are hosting Drive-Thru Backpack Giveaways to provide another 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to any student who needs one.

Every year kids go to school without the supplies they need to be successful. 1 in 3 Indiana families can’t afford the basics of housing, food, and transportation, despite working hard. For some families, it could come down to buying school supplies or keeping the lights on.

We want to give every kid the best chance of success. Indianapolis students will receive a quality backpack filled with these essential school supplies:

  • Wide-ruled notebook
  • 3 colorful pocket folders
  • Classic No.2 pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Pencil pouch
  • Crayons
  • Glue stick
  • Craft scissors

2021 IPS Back to School Festival

Indianapolis Public School’s Back to School Festival was a rousing success. We were able to give away nearly 4,000 backpacks to students in need. Backpacks 4 Good was featured on WTHR 13 and Fox 59.

Attendees could also pick up school uniforms, a science kit, and information about community events and upcoming vaccination stations for students to receive their shots for school and the COVID-19 vaccine.

We were so honored to be a part of this fantastic event!

Stay tuned for upcoming backpack giveaways with IPS.

A letter from our founder, John Hensley

Dear Awesome IPS Student,

As a kid, I was sometimes nervous to go to school. Would I make friends? Did I have the right school supplies? Who would I sit with at lunch? Who would I play with at recess?

As you begin this exciting new school year, you may feel some of those BIG emotions too. One way we wanted to help with those emotions was to provide you with this backpack and school supplies to set you up for an EPIC year of learning. We want you to know how much we appreciate you, your great teachers and caretakers at home.

From all of us at Hensley Legal Group, we hope you have an amazing year full of learning, overcoming fears and having a little fun.

Here’s to a fantastic school year!

John Hensley
