Some of you expressed some interest in doing a one-time volunteer event with Volunteers of American to help sort and pack the backpacks and supplies as part of Operation Backpack.
I called VOA and here's the information:
There is a 5-8 PM shift available for those interested in volunteering on Monday, August 12. I plan on arriving at 5 PM, but you are welcome to get there when you can.
The location is in West Chelsea on West 26th Street between 11th Avenue and the West Side Highway. I will update this page with the exact address as soon as I get it.
When you arrive, there will be a check-in on the ground floor, and then they'll send us up to where the sorting and packing will commence.
Questions? Please email me at [masked] or call/text me at[masked]. Maybe we can grab a late-ish dinner after we're all done.
