NEW YORK (PIX11) — New Yorkers are stepping up to help out kids become school-ready this upcoming fall.

Along with several projects that support children and their families with their education and well-being, New York Cares is launching their “Stand with Students” campaign, where New Yorkers can donate back-to-school supplies and help fund fitness programs for kids, among other initiatives, as they get ready for the academic year.
