Message from the Mayor

As students prepare for the start of the new school year, many parents, especially those with more than one 
child in school, are overwhelmed by the cost of purchasing new backpacks and school supplies.

That's why we are holding our 8th Annual Backpack to School Donation Drive, held in partnership with 
Yonkers Public Schools and various sponsors. We have set up drop-off location boxes throughout 
the City, and the Drive will run through August 22nd.

I encourage all Yonkers residents and businesses to once again donate to those students and families in need.
