Thank you to all of the individuals, companies, schools, community organizations and volunteers who helped make the 12th annual Project: Back to School a success! With your help, we were able to collect and distribute more than 4,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to the schoolkids who need them most.
Tonight, more than 21,000 children will sleep in New York City shelters, and roughly 1 in 10 students in our public schools will experience homelessness at some point this year. The challenges and stresses these girls and boys face are unimaginable. But something as seemingly small as a new backpack filled with school supplies can truly make a world of difference for these kids. Thank you for your ongoing support of Project: Back to School!
