This year Crowe LLP – New York City has decided to work with High Water Women’s Backpack Drive for our Crowe Serves day of service.
In 2018 High Water Women provided 12,800 school backpacks stuffed with age-appropriate school supplies to children in need in the NYC/CT/NJ areas. Their goal for 2019 is to provide at least 20,000 backpacks.
The HWW Backpack Drive helps some of the most needy children in the NY/NJ/CT area start school ‘ready to learn’ with new backpacks and school supplies. It is a vote of confidence in these children and relief to their families who are otherwise unable to afford these supplies.
The backpacks are filled with grad-appropriate supplies including: notebooks, folders, loose leaf paper, markers, pens, pencils, pencil cases, protractors, calculators, graph paper, staplers, dictionaries, scissors, erasers, crayons, rulers, early readers… and much more! I would appreciate your support and help in reaching that goal through a donation. Each $25 donation funds a fully-supplied backpack for a local child in need:
Backpacks for 40 Children = $1,000
Backpacks for 20 Children = $500
Backpacks for 10 Children = $250
Backpacks for 4 Children = $100
Backpacks for 2 Children = $50
Any donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated! Additionally, if you would like to participate in assembling backpacks on July 26 from 10am - 2pm, please let me know your t-shirt size as soon as possible, that way I can add you to our Crowe Serves roster.
Thank you so much for your support!
