Over 20,000 children live in family homeless shelters in NYC. Each year, Operation Backpack donates a backpack filled with a year's worth of school supplies to each and every one of these children.
LET'S DO IT AGAIN!
We began working with Operation Backpack last year. Our family and friends helped us to raise over $3,500 and with your support, we hope to surpass that in 2017.
One of the most devastating consequences of family homelessness is the impact it has on a child’s education. A new backpack full of new supplies can make the difference between children being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all.
The success of Operation Backpack is 100% dependent on support from our community. Please join us in helping VOA achieve its goal of supplying every homeless child in NYC with a filled backpack.
Thank you for your support,
Ross, Shari, Jillian & Charlotte
