THE STORY:

Hey All -- I'm participating in this year's Operation Backpack with Volunteers of America. You can read more about the program below, but they're aiming to help get the nearly 23,000 children living in NYC homeless shelters ready for school. I am joining in this quest. Please either: - consider donating a backpack, filled with supplies. They separate the backpacks by grade so pick a grade and fill the bag with supplies listed for that grade. All that info can be found: https://www.voa-gny.org/what-goes-in-a-backpack -consider donating money to my team, so we can buy supplies or sponsor expensive supplies (such as calculators, usb) Thank you! VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREATER NEW YORK wrote - We always need money, product and other in-kind donations which is why we ask you to hold drives, purchase and fill backpacks, “adopt” a supply (500 boxes of crayons for instance) and fundraise on our behalf. Take your kids shopping for their school supplies and let them select and fill one for one of our kids; it’s a GREAT first introduction to philanthropy. Then we have scores of teams of volunteers, and individuals and families, sorting supplies into backpacks in August and prepare them for pick up by the shelters. A new, full backpack can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school and not wanting to go at all. It allows the children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important. Talk to us about getting more deeply involed, organizing a drive, getting your company to become an official sponsor of the campaign. Introduce us to your friends and family, be our champions and get your office supply company to donate in-kind product. Plus, individual and group volunteer opportunities abound, during Operation Backpack and throughout the year. Contact us! rweinstein@voa-gny.org
