Each year, the High Water Women Backpack Drive helps some of the neediest children in our area start school in September ready to learn. For the third year in a row, KPMG NY will again participate in the High Water Women Backpack Drive by hosting an on-site Backpack Assembly Event at its 345 Park Avenue location on Wednesday August 1st where it will assemble 450 backpacks. KPMG NJ will also be hosting a backpack assembly event and assemble 160 backpacks. Our combined goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase the school supplies needed to assemble all 610 backpacks at our two backpack assembly events. Each $20 donation funds a backpack filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. This is a great opportunity for KPMG employees to participate in community outreach by making a donation to help us reach our goals.
KPMG NY has been paired with the Child Care Center of New York (CCNY), a non-profit organization that has a powerful community presence throughout NYC, reaching nearly 30,000 children and their families each year. Its mission is to strengthen children and families with skills, opportunities, and emotional support to build healthy, successful lives. Its programs include Behavioral Health, Youth Development, Early Childhood Education, Prevention & Family Support and Health Homes & Integrated Care. All assembled backpacks from our Backpack Assembly Event will be given to CCNY.
