THE STORY:

For over a decade Operations Backpack has been giving New York City’s homeless students new backpacks full of all the grade specific supplies they need to do their work and to fit it with their classmates.  For children who are homeless, having a new backpack in time for the start of the new school year is confidence-building and truly exciting.

Family homelessness is at an all-time high and Volunteers of America anticipates requests for nearly 20,000 backpacks this year. So that no child has to be turned away, we are anyone who is in a position to help  to do so, as generously as you possibly can.  Volunteers of America has systems in place that ensure efficiency and accountability and uses economies of scale to stretch all the dollars they raise so rest assured, your donations will be used wisely.

There is a lot of sadness and tragedy in the world these days but VOA through its Operation Backpack program gives us one way to impact the lives of thousands of the most vulnerable children right here in our local community.
