NYFC Kicks Off the 2011 Back-to-School Package Drive

NYFC makes dreams of a higher education a reality for youth in foster care. As we kick off our Annual Back-to-School Package Drive, our goal is to provide every college-enrolled young person in foster care with the necessary tools to succeed throughout their entire educational experience. Each Back-to-School Package is valued at over $2,500 and includes a laptop, printer, software, backpack, dorm essentials, school supplies, gift cards, and more.
