Operation BackpackⓇ ensures that every child living in a homeless shelter in New York City who needs one, has a new backpack filled with top-quality, grade-specific school supplies before the first day of school. By having it in their hands ahead of time, students can begin to feel excited about returning to the classroom and avoid the stigma that comes with being homeless right from day one.
In honor of Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world, Wendy and SNAX-Sational Brands through their SNACKGiving platform, kicked off a campaign on December 3rd to raise funds for Operation BackpackⓇ. The new charity partnership was first announced at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago this past Spring, by SNAX-Sational Brand ambassador, and Operation BackpackⓇ supporter, Wendy Williams, our Ambassador of SNACKGiving.
