PPNA Backpack and School Supply Giveaway

Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association Backpack and School Supply Giveaway

By Robert Press

Sunday was the Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association Backpack and School Supply Giveaway at Destination Tomorrow located at the corner of Barnes and Lydig Avenues. Tables were set out for Backpacks and School Supplies donated by Councilwoman Marjorie Velazquez, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Catholic Charities of New York, Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez, Kreaky Products, and the Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association. 

Children came and looked at the tables of backpacks, then chose the one they wanted. After that it was stopping at other tables to fill the backpack with whatever they may need in school from pencils, pens, glue sticks, paper, marble notebooks, and folders to name some of the school supplies for the children.  



Children came in and had three tables of backpacks to choose from. Here the Councilwoman Marjorie Velazquez table is filled with different color backpacks and two staffers eager to assist the children.
The Catholic Charities table had colorful backpacks for little children, and bags of sanitizer  that were handed out to all.
The Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez table had backpacks, buttons, and information.
Then it was to the KREAKY Products table for some school supplies with KREAKY Products owner Chica Cruz and PPNA President Steve Glosser.
The children were able to get marble notebooks, spiral notebooks, glue sticks, pencils, pencil sharpeners, filler paper, and folders provided by the PPNA.
