Operation Backpack


Planning for Operation Backpack® 2014 is well under way and we need your support! Operation Backpack provides backpacks filled with grade-specific supplies to children living in New York City’s homeless and domestic violence shelters. Last year, with the help of nearly 150 companies, community groups and the general public, we distributed a record-breaking 16,100 backpacks to these children.  This year, the need is greater than ever— please help!
