VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER NEW YORK's Fundraiser:

* VOA OPERATION BACKPACK TEAM

VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER NEW YORK's Photo

THE STORY:

We always need money, product and other in-kind donations which is why we ask you to hold drives, purchase and fill backpacks, “adopt” a supply (500 boxes of crayons for instance) and fundraise on our behalf. Take your kids shopping for their school supplies and let them select and fill one for one of our kids; it’s a GREAT first introduction to philanthropy. 

Then we have scores of teams of volunteers, and individuals and families, sorting supplies into backpacks in August and prepare them for pick up by the shelters. A new, full backpack can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all. It allows the children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important. 

Talk to us about getting more deeply involed, organizing a drive, getting your company to become an official sponsor of the campaign. Introduce us to your friends and family, be our champions and get your office supply company to donate in-kind product. Plus, individual and group volunteer opportunities abound, during Operation Backpack and throughout the year. Contact us! rweinstein@voa-gny.org
