Volunteers of America invites the entire community to contribute to Operation Backpack, to ensure that every homeless child in New York City has a backpack full of the same supplies their classmates have. For those of us fortunate enough to be able to purchase everything our kids need to be prepared for school, this is a wonderful opportunity to help parents who are not so lucky.
Every donation no matter the amount, moves us closer to our goal of a backpack for every homeless student in every borough of New York City in time for the first day of school.
To earn more about this local cause or to volunteer with your family, friends and colleagues give me a call or go to www.Operationbackpacknyc.org
Thanks for supporting this cause - it means a lot to me.
