THE STORY:

One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it can have on a child’s education. Frequent school transfers and the stigma associated with living in a shelter add up to great hardship for these children. If not for Operation Backpack, many of these children would begin the school year with another disadvantage: unlike their classmates, they would enter the classroom with no backpack and few, if any, school supplies. So on day one, these kids would be identified as “disadvantaged” or worse “shelter kids” setting the stage for their entire school year. But the New York City community and beyond has the opportunity to change this story. Indeed, the success of Operation Backpack relies 100% on support from the community in the form of financial gifts and sponsorship, donations of product and services and spreading the word about the campaign. Last year, thanks to the generosity of thousands of people who live and work in New York City or care about the city, we were able to give every student living in a homeless or domestic violence shelter who needed one, a new, full, grade-specific backpack. We anticipate needing approximately 20,000 backpacks this year and hope you’ll help. - See more at: http://www.voa-gny.org/operation-backpack#sthash.YSRYRhit.dpuf
