For years Deloitte. has supported Operation Backpack and Gerry Cunningham, PPD is a Volunteers of America-Greater New York board member. VOA began Operation Backpack over 10 years ago and it has grown from a small drive to give 800 children gently used backpacks, to THE drive that supplies thousands of New York City's homeless children with new backpacks full of new, grade-specific supplies. These backpacks not only give the children the supplies they need to do their work, but can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school and refusing to go at all. We need to help VOA and Operation Backpack keep these kids in school!
