Backpacks For The Street
Welcome to Backpacks For The Street volunteer registration. We operate by the mantra that a person's circumstances does not diminish their value as a human being or make them any less deserving of kindness and compassion. Something as simple as a backpack can give a person a boost of hope and show them they are not alone.
Registration Currently Open:
- Feb. 23: Backpcks, Coats & Sleeping Bag (Morning, LES and Downtown)
Registration is FULL with a waiting list.
- Feb 23th: Warehouse Help (Afternoon):
We need some extra hands to help us organize, inventory and move some things around in our warehous in Jamaica. This is a CRITICAL need, and as important as the other work we do.
Whether you can help for an hour or two or three or four, your particpation would be appreciated.
Pizza and beverages will be served too.
