How You Can Help This Year

Even though the start of school seems far away, you can ensure that Malik, Yumi, and the future leaders of tomorrow have the supplies and inspiration they need when the first bell (or Zoom call) rings so they can walk confidently, smile wider, and dream bigger.

Volunteer at Back2School

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our annual Back2School drive! Volunteers are needed for the 2020 Back2School Drive from August 3 – August 25 to assist with sorting, packing, and distributing supplies.

Several new health and safety measures are being taken at our collection and distribution sites to minimize the risk to volunteers and staff. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old to volunteer independently; 16-17 years old may volunteer with a parent/guardian. Due to the nature of the activities and elevated safety measures, anyone younger than 16 years old cannot volunteer for this drive.

If you are a group leader and are interested in multiple slots and/or shifts, please contact Karen Horowitz directly.
