The Plaza Sustainability Committee presents an opportunity to make a difference in a child's life with supporting Operation Backpack NYC. With "more than 22,000 children [living] in NYC’s homeless and domestic violence shelters ... a filled backpack allows these children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important and that someone believes in them."
“Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future” -JFK
