Every September, students from low–income families arrive on the first day of school without the supplies they need to learn. Showing up with the right items is not only necessary, but also a confidence booster. All of the families The NYSPCC serves live below the poverty level and have few resources to buy new supplies for their children. Our Drive for Success initiative is dedicated to providing the children with new school supplies. With your help, we can ensure our kids have the tools they need to learn and excel in the classroom!
• Purchase items locally from our wish list below and drop them off directly at The NYSPCC offices. Click here to download our school supply wish list.
• Create your own back-to-school drive at your business, church, or community center.
• Want to contribute but don’t have time to go to the store? Purchase supplies from our Amazon Wish List to have items sent directly to us. Don’t forget to shop through Amazon Smile and choose ‘The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children’ as your beneficiary! A portion of your purchase will be donated to The NYSPCC.
