BENEFITING: VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER NEW YORK
EVENT: Operation Backpack 2016
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2016
One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child’s education. Thousands of children live with their families in a New York City homeless shelter and most would return to school each year without the school supplies they need, looking and feeling on day one different from their classmates if not for Volunteers of America’s Operation Backpack® .
Last year, we supplied 61 backpacks plus 3 bags of supplies, 24 employees went on site to help sort backpacks and we raised $690 to help fund purchasing school supplies. How far can we reach this year?
Thank you, as always, for your generosity and support.
