Purpose

(Staten Island, NY) In order to prepare parents and students for the start of a new academic year, Senator Diane J. Savino will sponsor a “Back to School Blast”, where parents and students will receive free school supplies, free health screenings, giveaways, safety tips and college-related information. Kids will also be treated to healthy snacks, games and other activities. Representatives from city and state local agencies, including the NYC Public Library System, the FDNY, Project Hospitality, Boy Scouts of America, Richmond University Medical Center and Staten Island University Health Center will also be present. The event is co-sponsored Richmond County Savings Foundation, One Way Youth of First Central Baptist Church and the Downtown Staten Island Council.

Last year over a thousand Staten Islanders participated in the event.
