Under the extreme weight of it all…Pastor Peter from NYSUM calls and moves us forward by supplying the need at hand

NYSUM New York School of Urban Ministry is preparing for their Backpack Outreach program, which will aid 1,200 inner city youth by giving them new backpacks including school supplies. According to The City and The Coalition for The Homeless, 25,000 children are homeless in New York City with roughly 1 out of every 13 children in the public school system being homeless. With these alarming statistics in mind, the average family living in a shelter is unable to afford rent, let alone buy school supplies for their children. This is why NYSUM is raising funds to positively impact these inner city youth by providing 1,200 new backpacks and school supplies offering these children a hopeful new outlook.

Each pack will consist of a brand new backpack, one package of 16 color crayons, one large glue stick, one composition notebook, one measuring ruler, two pencils, one colorful portfolio folder, one large zip lock back and gospel literature. By contributing only $10 you can provide this backpack including supplies to a youth in need and make a lasting impact in their life. You can donate by visiting nysum.kindful.com
