2014 Project: Back to School

We have already delivered nearly 2,000 backpacks full of supplies to homeless kids throughout New York City, but we need to raise another $3,000 as soon as possible to guarantee that no child goes to school without the basic necessities.

Project: Back to School aims to collect at least 3,700 new backpacks filled with school supplies this year, which we will deliver directly to students living in New York City homeless shelters.

The instability and stigma faced by home­less children – who simply cannot afford basic items like pencils, erasers and rulers – can be devastating, and makes it very hard for them to keep up with their peers in school. By supporting Project: Back to School, you’ll help give these kids the tools they need to succeed in class.
