Operation Backpack + Affinia Hotels & Suites
Affinia Hotels & Suites has partnered with Volunteers of America to join Operation Backpack!
One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child’s education. Thousands of children live with their families in a NYC homeless shelter and most would return to school each year without the school supplies they needed. Operation Backpack has changed that all and has been providing NYC’s most vulnerable children with new backpacks brimming with grade-appropriate school supplies in time for the first day of school. So they can start school on day one, looking and feeling like their classmates. Volunteers of America’s goal is 20,000 this year, let’s make it happen!!
