We “Stuffed the Bus” with 350 backpacks! Thank you to all members, friends and family who have helped make the school supply drive successful.
The backpacks will be distributed through the Salvation Army programs in the metro New York Area to children in need. The goal is to support the families residing in their family shelters, whose children attend day care centers and after school programs or already receive social services from one of their 38 community centers. By equipping these children with everything they need to start the new school year off right, they will be able to focus on what’s most important – Learning.
Special thanks to charitable works committee members for their hard work in stuffing the backpacks with received supplies, doing pickups and getting the word out about our event.
