Every child deserves a shot at success, and a new school year should be a fresh start no matter a child's background or level of family income. Yet many children from underserved communities start school without the basic supplies they need: paper, pencils, binders, and notebooks. You can help by donating and packing backpacks! 

UJA Westchester is working with Supplies for Success to ensure that each child has the tools to succeed in the classroom. This fundraiser and packing event will support our annual back to school drive. Backpacks will be donated to a UJA partner and a grantee — Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) and Hope Community Services.

Parents, children, and grandparents are all welcome! 

Please register for the packing event and purchase as many backpacks as you can.  

Can’t attend, but want to make a difference? Any donations will go toward the cost of supplying backpacks. Hit the donate button below!
