Please join Cross It Off Your List in support of Operation Backpack, which is a community service of Volunteers of America – Greater New York. Operation Backpack is NYC’s largest back-to-school drive whose goal is to provide a new backpack filled with grade-specific school supplies for every child living in one of the more than 150 New York City homeless or domestic violence shelters. In 2015, 19,400 children received a backpack in time for the first day of school. In 2016, the demand is greater than ever! Volunteers of America hopes to provide a backpack to every child in a shelter who needs one, but will need our help to do so. Please consider an online donation so that together we can help the Volunteers of America give every child living in a New York City shelter a new, full backpack for the upcoming school year. Your support will make a difference to a child in need.
