New York City Chapter - Operation Backpack

Calling all WiE NYC Members!

We need your help supporting an important cause: Operation Backpack. It's the largest back-to-school drive in New York City for homeless students. The success of Operation Backpack® relies 100% on support from our community. You can help in two ways:


We would greatly appreciate a donation of any size towards our Team WiE Backpack Crowdrise. This donation will help the 23,000 children living in NYC homeless shelters by providing them with backpacks full of grade-specific supplies. They can begin the school year with the resources needed to be successful.

This year, our fundraising goal is $5000. We are counting on you and your network to help us meet this goal by August 31st! Please forward the donation link below and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to also donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/team-wie-backpack/fundraiser/WiENYCROCKS

Volunteer Dates:

We need volunteers to assist with the sorting and stuffing of backpacks. If you've already signed up, please sign up again. Friends outside of WiE are also welcome. We've made some changes to the dates/times and apologize for any confusion. WiE Members will be meeting on Thursday at 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm to volunteer.

The sorting will take place in Manhattan in the borough of Chelsea. The exact location will be sent shortly. From all of us here at WiE, we greatly appreciate your support and thank you for helping improve the lives of NYC children.
