PS 452 Operation Backpack 2017

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 2017. 


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. 


Donate an amount that is meaningful to you. No gift is too small! Every little bit makes a difference! Thank you!
