You're one click away from changing a child's learning experience.
WHY IS THE BACK 2 SCHOOL EXPRESS IMPORTANT?
The school year is soon to begin, whether in the classroom or remotely, yet more than 30% of Long Island students' families are unable to afford all of the necessary items to succeed in school. Since the emergence of COVID-19, the education landscape has changed drastically and it has been a challenging time for school-age children, parents and teachers. With the increase in remote learning, access to traditional school supplies and digital technology has become critical to the success of our students.
United Way remains committed to ensuring that all Long Island students are given equal opportunities and resources to succeed academically, as education is crucial to opening doors in our children's futures.
