Queens, NY — A new school year should be a fresh start no matter a child’s background or level of family income. Every child deserves a shot at success, especially given the difficulties of the past couple of years. Yet many children in our community start school without the basic supplies they need: paper, pencils, notebooks, and art supplies.
On August 14, 2022, volunteers at the Commonpoint Queens Sam Field Center – in partnership with Supplies for Success – will be assembling backpacks with school supplies to ensure that each child has the tools to succeed in the classroom. Together we’ll make sure that no family has to choose between paying their electric bill or buying school supplies.
