Thank you for checking out my CrowdRise page! As a member of the Young Leadership Council (YLC) for the GO Project, I am raising money for our First Annual Backpack Drive. The purpose of this drive is to provide 550 academically struggling students with fully-supplied backpacks at the start of GO Summer 2014. This will require that we raise $8,000! Please see below for a breakdown of costs:
It costs about $20 for each backpack with supplies.
Backpacks for 50 children = $1,000
Backpacks for 25 children = $500
Backpacks for 12 children = $240
Backpacks for 5 children = $100
Backpack for 1 child = $20
I volunteered as a GO Fundamentals Tutor in the spring of 2014 (January-April), and I will continue to do so in the fall. For two hours each week, I reviewed math (alegebra) and reading comprehension with 6th grade students. This experience has further confirmed my personal belief that education is so critical to bridging economic and social gaps.
The GO Project (www.goprojectnyc.org) is a nonprofit organization addressing the educational needs of academically struggling, low-income public school students and their families in Lower Manhattan.
