THE STORY:

There are approximately 20,000 homeless school aged kids living in shelters in NYC who start the new school year with no school supplies. The consequences of homelessness and domestic violence negatively impacts their academic success. Please help me by supporting this worthy cause. Together we can give them the confidence, preparedness, and tools necessary for success.

You may make a monetary donation online, purchase backpacks and supplies and help distribute them to the shelters. For more information visit: OPERATIONBACKPACKNYC.ORG . You will see a list of school supplies needed for each grade.
