Operation Backpack - P.S NY

This summer Sapient Consulting and SapientRazorfish New York are teaming up with Volunteers of America for Operation Backpack. There are 23,000 children living in the City's homeless shelters for whom the stigma of living in a shelter can negatively impact their education. Operation Backpack’s mission is to equip these students with a full backpack for the new school year. 

This page is for P.S. employees to chip in and help us meet our goal for NY Summer CSR. Donations will go towards materials for backpacks with grade-specific school supplies. We’ll be leveraging our office supply vendors for reduced prices.

Help empower children at homeless shelters to start school with confidence!
