Last year, #OperationBackpackNYC provided 18,000 children staying in New York City homeless and domestic violence shelters with a new backpack full of every grade-specific school supply they needed for the new school year.

Skyer Law is proud to be part of this Volunteers of America drive each year. And there are still a few days left to participate! Collection sites all over NYC are accepting backpacks until Friday, August 3rd. Get your "Fill A Backpack" shopping list for every grade level on the Volunteers of America website. This is a wonderful activity for parents to do with children as you go about your own back-to-school shopping.

Volunteers of America-Greater New York is grateful to work with sponsors, partners, and volunteers who understand the importance of this cause and the children it supports.
