It’s midnight, and the temperature outside is in the 20’s. On this particular night, Backpacks For The Street’s co-founder, Jayson Conner, talks with Jorge who tells him that the only place he feels safe taking shelter is inside New York’s Port Authority.

Grateful for someone to share a conversation with, he chats with us for a bit. Then Jayson hands him a backpack with socks, gloves, and food, among other things.

On July 10- 12, 2016, Jayson and co-founder Jeffrey Newman, will head back out to the streets of Manhattan, with 16 volunteers, to hand out 150, backpacks, filled with food, toiletries, and many necessities, to the homeless.

Please join the movement and help us continue to make a difference.
