Our Partners

Each year since 2003, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has been distributing new backpacks filled with grade-specific school supplies to New York City children who are homeless. Last year, thanks to 353 corporate and other community partners, 19,000 children living in a New York City homeless or domestic violence shelter who needed one, received a new, full backpack.

We truly wouldn't be able to meet our goal without the support of sponsors like RXR Realty (pictured above), who donate the space and services for our Sort Week(s), the culmination of the Operation Backpack® drive.

Please consider adding your name to the 2020 list of sponsors and partners, in formation. To learn about the benefits of early sponsorship commitments contact Rachel Weinstein, VP, Communications & External Relations, at rweinstein@voa-gny.org.
