The average American family spends nearly $700 getting their kids ready for school. Win works with many generous sponsors to provide new backpacks and school supplies to over 2,500 children each fall. Through this initiative, sponsor groups purchase backpacks from a registry page hosted by our supply vendor Sydney Paige. We encourage each group to buy at least 100 backpack bundles, which range in cost from $32-40 each based on grade level. Donors help Win students feel confident on their first day of school and on track for a successful academic year. For more information, please email us at VolunteerServices@winnyc.org.
