Backpack Kid

Thanks to Bloomberg's "Backpack to School Drive," 325 children from our Family Resource Center in East New York, Brooklyn headed back to school with brand-new backpacks and school supplies. Bloomberg employees donated the backpacks and filled them with pencils, rulers, erasers, and notebooks. 

The backpacks were distributed by Bloomberg volunteers and Partnership staff at a Back to School Backpack Bash at the Family Resource Center on August 31. Special thanks to Bloomberg for organizing the drive, volunteering their time, providing snacks for the party, and giving our kids a fresh start to the new school year!
