Karen Dahl's Fundraiser:

PS 452 Operation Backpack 2016

THE STORY:

Currently, there are 23,000 NYC kids who call a shelter "home" and most are school age. Thanks to Operation Backpack, last year, every one of these children started school with a new, full backpack, just like every other kid in the class. PS 452 families can help make this a reality again in 2016.

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 another classmate.

A new backpack full of new supplies can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all. It also relieves the family of an expense they cannot afford. Click here for a list of what goes in the backpacks. Donate an amount that is meaningful to you. No gift is too small! Every little bit makes a difference!
