Operation Backpack® 2023 Thank You

Even as family homelessness in New York City has continued to break records this year, we are proud to have provided new, high-quality backpacks full of grade-appropriate school supplies to our largest-ever number of children served through Operation Backpack®. We are proud to help equip students with the basic tools they need to succeed academically and invest in helping break the cycle of family poverty and homelessness.

Thanks to your incredible generosity, 19,000 children experiencing homelessness have returned to the classroom this year with new backpacks and the school supplies they need to not only thrive academically, but get one step closer to breaking the cycle of family poverty.
