About

Summer is fast approaching back to school time- and we need your help!

Help us to get school supplies in the hands of needy East Harlem children!

For our East Harlem families who live well below the poverty line, getting children all the supplies they need to be ready for school in the fall can be expensive. Your company can help children in our Summer Reading and Math Academy get back-to-school supplies that will set them up for success in the upcoming school year. Despite pockets of gentrification, East Harlem remains one of the poorest and most underserved communities in Manhattan. Over 70% of children are born into poverty here, and they face higher risks to their health and wellbeing than children living almost anywhere else in New York City.

This online school supply drive is a fun and easy way to engage people in your company or organization to give back to a community that truly needs a helping hand. Running the drive is easy, since all donations are made online - all you have to do is promote the drive within your company or organization.
