School Kids

Women’s Empire along with Council Member Eric Dinowitz, Council Member Kevin Riley, and designer Mugzy McFly will be hosting a Back-to-School Family Day on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. at the P.S. 16 Wakefield School Playground -- 4550 Carpenter Ave, Bronx, NY 10470. 


As many families continue to grapple with financial and other challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to help relieve the burden of securing necessary school supplies for local neighbors in need. Families will receive free school supplies and enjoy food and games.


Like previous years, we hope to gather school supplies, gift cards, and shopping coupons/codes as giveaway items. We are slated to service over 500 families, but any number of available items or products will be greatly appreciated.


We welcome your support and we are happy to provide you with more information or coordinate pick-up or postal shipment for supplies. However, if you cannot donate supplies, we welcome cash donations.


Your support is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to working with you to help students in our community start the year off right!
