2019 Project: Back to School

2019 Project: Back to School

Nearly 115,000 NYC school kids experienced homelessness at some point last year – that’s roughly one-in-ten students in our city. The stress and trauma of homelessness leave these girls and boys struggling to keep up with their classmates, and their families often can’t afford even the most basic items that kids need for school: backpacks, notebooks, binders, and other supplies.

Project: Back to School partners with companies, law firms, schools and caring individuals to collect more than 3,000 NEW backpacks for homeless students and fills them with all the supplies a child needs to start the school year right.
