THE STORY:


Dear Tenants, 


2 Park Avenue has partnered up with Volunteers of America to launch our annual Operation Backpack event for 2017. We hope you join us in this effort to every child who called a NYC Shelter "home" started school with a new, full backpack, just like every other kid in the class. This event will be held from July 17, 2017 to August 4, 2017.


One of the most devastating consequences of family homelessness is the impact it has on a child’s education. The stigma of being homeless weighs heavily on these children. If a child goes to school without a backpack or with few supplies, other children will take notice and see a child "in need" rather than just another classmate. A new backpack full of new supplies can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all. It also relieves the family of an expense they cannot afford. 


We hope you can make your contribution for this event. A donation box will be set up in our lobby for backpacks, pencils, and other school supplies. Let's make a difference. 


Thank You,

The Two Park Avenue Management Team
