Rutgers Community Programs teach the children living in our family shelter on the Upper West Side to explore their own #creativity year-round. Thank you to #art teachers Lesley Countryman, Cindy Schaffer, and Somer Adams for making their backpack selection day even more special with a fun craft! #craft #crafting #artistic #creative #kids #children #fun #colorful #giveback #community #teach
Official #OperationBackpackNYC sponsors @Walgreens & @DuaneReade put as much care into their #community as they do with their customers! An in-store campaign raised $70K+ & they donated 7,000 USB flash drives, so that children in shelters will be prepared on the 1st day of school. #school #education #backpack #schoolsupplies #children #community #socialresponsibility #CSR #giveback #thankyou
