SAVE THE DATE: Child Poverty Awareness Day 2024

Did you know that 1 in 4 children in New York City live in poverty?

RIVER FUND approaches access to education as the main, realistic tool for our families to break the cycle of poverty.


Every August our Back-to-School Program, Child Poverty Awareness Day, supplies each child with age and grade-specific educational materials and backpacks to set our youth up for success in the new school year. 

With the help of our community, RIVER FUND distributed over 5,500 backpacks and school supplies last year. PLEASE JOIN US and help make a difference for children in need. 

WHEN: Saturday, August 17, 2024 | 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM

WHERE: 89-11 Lefferts Boulevard, Richmond Hill, NY 11418
