E2LI is excited to announce our summer backpack campaign for children in need of school supplies for September.
It's summer time so let's celebrate the end of the school year, the start of summer, and help children less fortunate.
In 2018, Operation Backpack® Created by Volunteers of America (VOA) provided 20,000 NYC homeless children with a new backpack full of grade-specific school supplies needed in time for the first day of school.
These students received their backpacks before the first day of school, so they were able to start the year looking and feeling more like their housed classmates and less like a child in need. Thank you so much for your support!
