THE STORY:

Thousands of children live with their families in the New York City homeless shelter system and many of them return to school each year without the school supplies they need. From day one, they look and feel different from their classmates. In fact, one of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child’s education. Operation Backpack helps close this gap, providing new, filled backpacks to students who are homeless. The need this year is greater than ever. Volunteers of America hopes to be able to provide a backpack to every child, but will need our help to do so. Last year, Thomson Reuters 530 Fifth Avenue office participated in Operation Backpack and together we collected and donated 40 backpacks and we hope to meet that goal again! HOW YOU CAN HELP Our office has committed to collecting 40 full backpacks for 1-4 grade students. Please see the attached supply list. • ITEMS: Please bring donations to Julie Strachan Haiber’s cubicle (just let Julie know what you are dropping off so we can track the supply donations • FUNDS: Donate funds for purchasing supplies—please contact Jennifer Sharf Visit www.OperationBackpackNYC.org. *Don’t forget that if you are a full-time employee Thomson Reuters will match donations of both time and money as well as giving you two paid days off to volunteer. Log your hours with the My Volunteering tool*
