The Reprise SEO (Search Engine Optimization) team is looking to create a better education experience for kids in the NYC community who may not have access to all the tools necessay to learn. By teaming up with Operation Backpack NYC we can help change this! Our mission is to raise as much money as we can to provide backpacks and schools supplies to NYC kids in need!
Currently, the goal is $1k, however, we are looking to raise far beyond thisl. Every donation counts, whether it's supplies or money, so let's help pave the way for our future generations!
If you chose to give money click that donate button! All donations will be used to buy school supplies and backpacks, which will be donated to Operation Backpack NYC.
If you would like to provide backpacks or school supplies, a list of items needed can be found here: https://d2ngl0nkh8z0ib.cloudfront.net/uploads/pdf_file/file/2272/VOA_2018-OBP_Lists.pdf
There will be a dropbox for all supplies on the 3rd floor, next to the SEO tables.
The last day for donations will be June 30th. Once donations are closed and supplies are purchased, we plan to have a "Backpacking Party" for all volunteers to help pack backpacks with school supplies to then be delivered to Operation Backpack NYC. We want to fill as many backpacks as possible, so all volunteers are welcome!
Please feel free to share this page with friends, family or colleagues, so they can help Reprise give back this summer!
For more information on Operation Backpack:
Currently there are 23,000 NYC kids who call a shelter "home" and most are school age. One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it can have on a child's education. Frequent school transfers and the stigma associated with living in a shelter add up to great hardship for these children. If not for Operation Backpack®, many of these children would begin the school year with another disadvantage: unlike their classmates, they would enter the classroom with no backpack and few, if any, school supplies. So on day one, these kids would be identified as "disadvantaged" or worse – "shelter kids" –setting the stage for their entire school year. This year, Reprise and IPG Mediabrands have an opportunity to change this story.
