Students and parents smile at backpack giveaway

When the office of NYS Senator Luis R. Sepúlveda (D-32) contacted us for help with a backpack and school supply giveaway, we were happy oblige. It is our sincere belief that just having a brand new backpack can lead to a year of academic success. Kids feel bad when they lack what they need for school. They feel less than their classmates, ashamed. Starting school off in that sad frame of mind doesn’t bode well for their subsequent performance in the classroom.

Every parent wants the best for their child–wants them to do well in school. These kids started the year off right, with brand new backpacks and with smiles, too.

It’s not just a theory. A teacher once told us that the only thing that really matters is that kids leave for school with smiles on their faces. Leaving for school with a ratty, hand-me-down of a backpack isn’t going to get them there. Not having crayons, pencils, and erasers? Ditto. Having nice, new things is what puts smiles on their bright young faces.

So thank you Senator Sepúlveda, for allowing us to take part in this important event that is bound to make a huge difference for the children of the Bronx. Because very child deserves the same opportunities to do well in school. And that begins with starting the year off right with everything a child needs for a successful year of learning.

Senator Sepúlveda’s office was kind enough to share some photos of the event with us–we thought we’d share them with our readers, too!
