Backpacks stuffed with pencils, notebooks, calculators, and other supplies were distributed just in time for the beginning of the school year.

A group of volunteers from AHRC donated their time to stuff the backpacks and prepare them forimage030
delivery to our local Jewish Community Councils. Backpacks were distributed throughout the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. They were also donated to clients of Met Council’s Crisis Services and Family Violence Services.

Through the kindness of our outstanding donors and volunteers, students can hit the books with confidence this school year!
