THE STORY:

Last year, 527 Madison was able to fill 200 backpacks and raise $5,000 so that every child who called a NYC Shelter "home" started school with a new, full backpack. This made a huge difference. This year, we're setting a goal to reach 300 filled backpacks and raise $10,000. Be part of Operation Backpack® and change the story of the 18,000+ homeless children in NYC. 


How you can help:

-Donate directly through Crowdrise!

-Donate supplies to the box in our lobby starting Monday, June 4!

-Start a donation box in your own office. Contact us and we will help you get started!

-Participate in Sort Week (August 6-24)!


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. 


Volunteers of America-Greater New York has responded to this important community need by offering Operation Backpack®. To learn more about Operation Backpack®, click here. Now in its second decade, Operation Backpack® is one more way Volunteers of America-Greater New York helps vulnerable children have some semblance of a "normal" childhood experience.  


CCS New York will be joining 200 other organizations partnering with Volunteers of America-Greater New York to provide new backpacks to the 18,000+ NYC kids living in NYC Shelters. Help meet our goal of filling 300 backpacks by August 3rd!
