Petula Shyu's Fundraiser:

Operation Backpack-Avalon Communities

THE STORY:

Operation Backpack is the back-to-school drive that collects and distributes new backpacks full of grade-specific supplies to the thousands of homeless children living in New York City homeless and domestic violence shelters. A new, full backpack is thrilling for the children to receive and can make the difference between the children being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all. One of the most devastating consequences of family homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. The stigma of being homeless weighs heavily on these children. if a child goes to school without a backpack or with few supplies, other children will take notice and see a child "in need" rather than just a new potential friend. Collectively, we can make a difference in the lives of children within our communities by creating a positive impact on their confidence as they begin the upcoming school year.
