About The Child Center of NY’s 2021 Backpack and School Supply Drive

Back-to-school supplies cost nearly $100 per child in New York City. For kids and families who live at or near the poverty line, the first day of school can be overshadowed by the stress of not having the resources to purchase the proper school supplies. With your support, this doesn’t have to be their reality.

We are excited to partner with High Water Women and Sydney Paige to provide our students with quality backpacks and full sets of school supplies.

As our children return to the classroom, please help them start the school year on the right foot by sponsoring backpack and school supply kit(s) today! Every dollar you give goes toward providing a fully stocked backpack for a child in need.


*Donation levels are representative of the impact of your gift.
