SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR BROOKLYN KIDS

About My Campaign

The end of summer is a whirlwind for families with children going back to school, and getting school supplies is a fun tradition in the midst of it all. Those shiny backpacks filled with sharp pencils and new notebooks help kids feel ready to take on another year.

Together, we can give kids and families in and around Sunset Park, Brooklyn, that same experience through NYU Langone Health’s 18th annual Back-to-School Drive.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of employees, friends, and community members, our Back-to-School Drive distributed school supplies to more than 2,000 children from underserved neighborhoods across Brooklyn. This year, we aim to do even better and help even more children and families! 

You Can Make a Difference

From now through August 30, you can make a gift to fund school supplies for students in Brooklyn.

Every $25 you give will provide a kit to a Brooklyn kid, with pencils, pens, notebooks, crayons, a ruler, and other essential supplies that will enable them to do their best.

On August 31, we will distribute thousands of fully stocked kits at Martin Luther playground, located directly across the street from NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. Additional kits will be available for children participating in local school programs in early September, with the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone.

Donations are fully tax deductible and have a meaningful impact. 

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of Brooklyn’s children! 

­­­­­­­­­­­___________

Any funds raised beyond the Back-to-School Drive’s stated fundraising goal will be used to purchase similar items for the families served throughout the year by the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone.

In memory of my mom, a public health nurse who always enjoyed back to school shopping for me and my three siblings.
Love, Prosperity and Good Health to Everyone!
Because every child should feel like a bright, shiny, new penny on the first day of school.
I wish the organizers well and the children all the best in life.
Education is key. Study hard and good-luck!
Great initiative! Happy to give.
When the majority all do a little, a lot can get done. No child should feel inadequate because they do not have basic necessities.
This is a good initiative.
Enjoy the new school year!
Along with family, Education is most important!
I'm so glad you do this every year. Not only does it help children and their families, but it helps teachers, who so often reach into their own limited funds to help kids in need.
Thank you for supporting Brooklyn's children!
Thank you for doing great work and for helping NYC. John
