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 7th Annual Backpack to School Donation Drive, held in partnership with
Yonkers Public Schools and sponsors Empire City Casino. We have set up drop-off location boxes throughout
the City, and the Drive will run through August 22nd.
Our first four Backpack to School donation drives have been a great success, and I encourage all Yonkers
residents and businesses to once again donate to those students and families in need.
