Elementary School Fundraising In NY – Backpacks For Students

What lessons can you learn from these school fundraising ideas In New York?

Keller Williams Realty Landmark, a Bayside Queens real estate firm hosted a back-to-school backpack event for the Bayside kids going to school this year.

How does the annual Backpacks To School work?

Many kids today are raised in single parent low income families. Mom or dad struggles to put food on the table , let alone buy their kids a new school back pack with supplies.

That is where Keller Williams Realty Landmark comes in. Their goal is to raise enough funds for 1,500 backpacks and school supplies for children who are about to start the school year.

The real estate firm is accepting backpacks, composition notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, erasers, glue, highlighter pens, markers, folders, rulers and pencil sharpeners. The idea is, if  you are shopping for school supplies for your kids, just buy a few more items to donate to a child in need.

How can you use these NY school fundraising ideas?

As a local business, Keller Williams is working hard to support their community. They chose to help students in elementary schools in their neighborhood.

School programs all across New York State have had budget cuts. This means there is a big hole that needs to be filled with fundraisers.

If you are a school, then reach out to local businesses to see if they can help. Many small businesses would welcome the opportunity to help out and get some free publicity at the same time.

Recently, one school in NYC did this. They teamed up with local businesses and auctioned off some amazing prizes including Yankee tickets. You can read about those school fundraising ideas in NY here…
