THE STORY:

Help The Roger support Operation Backpack! Donate to our Operation Backpack Crowdrise page and we will double your donation in Food&Beverage credits to be redeemed here at The Roger (up to a maximum credit of $250). Let's help them reach their goal!

Operation Backpack® is the back-to-school drive that collects and distributes new backpacks full of grade-specific supplies to the thousands of homeless children living in New York City homeless and domestic violence shelters. A new, full backpack is thrilling for the children to receive and can make the difference between the children being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all.

Last year Operation Backpack gave 19,400 children backpacks, and anticipate requests for about 20,000 this year since there are nearly 23,000 children who call a shelter “home” and most are school-age. Plus children are starting school earlier now that more Universal Pre-K seats are available. 

Operation Backpack® puts the backpacks in the children’s hands before they go to school so that on day one they look and feel more like their classmate and less like a “shelter kid” If we were to give the backpacks to teachers to give to children arriving at school without any supplies, not only would the teacher know this was a child in need, but so would the child’s classmates.
