THE STORY:

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. Volunteers of America-Greater New York has responded to this important community need by offering Operation Backpack®. To learn more about Operation Backpack®, click here. Now in its second decade, Operation Backpack® is one more way Volunteers of America-Greater New York helps vulnerable children have some semblance of a "normal" childhood experience. Currently there are 23,000 NYC kids who call a shelter "home" and most are school age. 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.
