Partner Spotlight: HarperCollins Publishers

For eight years, HarperCollins Publishers has donated 5,000 dictionaries and thesauruses to Operation Backpack® for our high school backpacks. Last year when we added dictionaries to the 5th-8th grade supply list, HarperCollins increased their donation of dictionaries to 7,000. In 2016, they surprised us with a financial donation of $25,000 through their parent company, NewsCorp.

HarperCollins always sends tremendous teams of volunteers to "Sort Week" in August to help prepare thousands of backpacks for delivery to the children.

Their generosity doesn't stop there. Every year, the company donates three specially themed picture books to each of the nearly 300 students - most with developmental delays - attending our preschool in the South Bronx.

Thank you HarperCollins Publishers!
