Ahead of the first day of school MET COUNCIL DISTRIBUTEd 400 BACKPACKS AND SUPPLIES

image030Thanks to the annual generous donation made by Jeff and Susan Goldstein and Barbara Mespelli @ Staples/Large quantity order department, more than 400 low-income kids will have the proper tools to achieve success in the classroom. Backpacks stuffed with pencils, notebooks, calculators, and other supplies were distributed just in time for the beginning of the school year.

Volunteers packed the backpacks and prepare them for delivery to our local Jewish Community Councils. Backpacks were distributed throughout 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!
