Providing Equity in Education
HOP ONTO THE BACK 2 SCHOOL EXPRESS!
You're one click away from changing a child's learning experience.
United Way of Long Island is collecting contributions for the Back 2 School Express that will be given to the families of students in need, so that they can afford all of the necessary items to thrive in school. Monetary contributions allow us to safely get learning supplies into the hands of eager youngsters.
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.
MAKE AN IMPACT
It doesn't take a big commitment to make a big impact. Together, with community members taking action, your contribution makes a difference in the lives of Long Island students. When you hop onto the Back 2 School Express you lend a hand to a child in need.
