Children of the City has been responding to the critical needs of families coping with trauma, abuse, delinquency and despair since 1981. One of our goals for this new school year is to provide 250 back packs filled with supplies to children in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a community known for countless families living below the poverty line, who often suffer from educational setbacks due to the myriad of challenges they face daily. These school supplies will equip students with the tools they need to succeed inside the classroom. Most of the families that Children of the City work with deal with challenging economic situations and difficulties at home that prevent them from reaching their full potential in school and in their personal lives. We aim to build a stable environment which promotes their emotional, academic, and social wellbeing. Being a part of our Back-to-School Backpack giveaway means you will be helping these students to feel equipped, confident, and ready to start the new school year.
