School Supplies Drive

Our School Supplies Drive helps to provide backpacks and materials for children from low-income families here on Long Island. Many of these students have at least one parent or sibling in the Criminal Justice System and are also at-risk of joining gangs, dropping out of school or getting involved in illegal drug use.  Beacon partnered with an alliance of churches, community-based organizations, local businesses and community leaders who encouraged these children to stay in school and provided over 700 backpacks with supplies.
