Help Homeless Kids Get Much Needed Tools For School
Manhattan Mini Storage Teams Up With Coalition For The Homeless To Support A Back-To-School Supply Donation Drive
(New York, NY, August 17, 2011) From August 22nd through September 16th, New Yorkers can donate school supplies to homeless city kids at Manhattan Mini Storage locations as part of Coalition for the Homeless' 4th Annual Project: Back to School.
It's easy. There will be donation boxes set up at all of Manhattan Mini Storage's 17 locations. People can come by any time through September 16th to drop off pens, pencils, crayons, glue sticks, markers, calculators, rulers, back packs, and other school supplies. Coalition for the Homeless will then sort and distribute them to needy kids throughout the city.
"Right now, there are 16,000 homeless boys and girls in our city, and we want to do whatever we can to help them to prepare for the upcoming school year, " said Stacy Stuart, VP of Marketing for Manhattan Mini Storage. "And once New Yorker's know about Project: Back to School, we know they'll want to help, too."
Each year, more than 113,000 different homeless New Yorkers, including nearly 43,000 children, sleep in the municipal shelter system. The number of homeless families has nearly doubled over the past decade. Coalition for the Homeless is committed to building a just and equitable society and creating lasting community change through solution-oriented programs and policy initiatives that eliminate the root causes of homelessness.
