Now through July 30th, every $10 donated on The Weeks Lerman Group Team Page is an entry to win a Sony Vizio Smart TV or HP ProBook Laptop! Since Operation Backpack® was introduced more than a decade ago, the goal has remained the same: to ensure that children living in NYC’s homeless and domestic violence shelters are prepared for the first day of school with new, full backpacks. In that time Volunteers of America-Greater New York has distributed more than 130,000 backpacks. This year, they anticipate requests for nearly 20,000. Homelessness can have a devastating effect on a child’s education – but you can help.
