Operation Big Book Bag was established in 1996 partnership with the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order, Nobles Mystic Shrine, Inc. (Shriners). The goal was to provide access, tools and mentorship for school age children.


Access can be provided through many forms such as educational tutorial websites, computers, iPads, laptops, software, flashcards, learning games, and reference materials. Tools can include basic school supplies such as pencils, paper, pens, rulers, calculators, notebooks and student planners to support the students with their coursework.

Alpha Sigma hosts an Operation Big BookBag school supplies drive each year to support a local Indianapolis school in need. This year we are partnering with Indianapolis Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and will be giving donations to Ignite Achievement Academy located at 1002 W. 25th Street, Indianapolis 46208.

If you would like to give a monetary donation, payments can be made via Paypal* to alphasigma1922@yahoo.com. *Please be sure to use the friends and family option and ensure that any fees charged are paid for by you, not taken out of the donation.
