Operation Backpack is Volunteers of America-Greater New York’s campaign that counts on the NYC community and beyond, to ensure that every New York City student living in a homeless shelter has a new backpack chock full of school supplies for the first day of school. Join in the cause and donate to our team in support of Operation Backpack!
Last year, we donated more than 245 backpacks through drives at our properties around New York City. We hope to surpass this goal again, in addition to raising funds to help Operation Backpack purchase the supplies they need to fill more than 16,000 new backpacks.
Please join our effort! E-mail Rhianna Nieves at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about donating supplies to a Brookfield Drive.
Thank you for your generosity!
