There are thousands of children in NYC's Homeless and Domestic Violence shelters that do not have the means to buy school supplies for the school year. Not having a backpack or supplies has a huge impact on these children and can affect whether they go to school or engage at school. With a backpack and supplies, these children gain confidence and are excited to go to school to learn. They feel like they fit in with everyone else when they have the tools their peers have and they are working towards getting an education to get out of the poverty cycle they are in.
Please support this great program and help ensure that every child in NYC Homeless and Domestic Violence shelters get the backpack and supplies they need to be successful.
