BENEFITING: VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER NEW YORK
EVENT: Operation Backpack® 2014!
EVENT DATE: Jun 09, 2014
What’s one degree closer to Kevin Bacon and one step closer to helping homeless youth succeed in school? Starrett-Lehigh. We are proud to announce that the Operation Backpack kickoff event will be hosted in our building, thanks to the tremendous generosity of our community. Operation Backpack, an initiative sponsored by Volunteers of America, provides young people living in homeless shelters the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom.
The Operation Backpack school supply drive directly helps our city's homeless youth look and feel more like their classmates. In the spirit of our community-mindedness, we'd like to invite you to join this effort. Please click "Donate To This Fundraiser" on the right and help us spread the word!
As special incentive, this year will feature prizes for top fundraisers. You’ll have a chance to enjoy the “Pack the Studio” kick-off party on June 9th, here at Starrett-Lehigh. There's also a sweepstakes in which one lucky winner and a guest will join Kevin Bacon on set here at Starrett-Lehigh for a short PSA announcing the Operation Backpack campaign and attend the post-shoot "Pack the Studio" reception. To be entered in the drawing, all you have to do is join our team and donate at least $25.
