Backpacks For The Street

Current Volunteer Opportunities

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:


  • Dec. 15:  Manhattan.


  • Dec. 22:  Manhattan.


Upcoming 2019 events:

  • Dec 25:                                   Holiday bags
  • Dec TBA                                 Forest Hills/Rego Park


Please note, we will be adding additonal dates NOT currently listed. Please check back often, or email, [email protected]

We are also planning to do added days with a special outreach to the large (and growing) homeless immigrant population. Details to follow soon.

Registration for these will open shortly. To be notified when they do, email [email protected]
