Empathy is required more than ever during these difficult times. Crosstown acknowledges that people have been effected and simply need help, especially children and the brave educators of New York City. We want to praise and lend a hand to these teachers who have committed their lives to education even during the most troubled times. Also to students who are soaring this modified moment.

Back-To-School supplies has a vastly different meaning in this year’s pandemic. As both teachers and students adjust to new learning environments it is up to us, the community, to do our part and assist with making transitions as seamless as possible. This school year we have donated PPE supplies to NYC schools starting off the new school year in support of our students and educators on the front line.

Proud PPE model, Ms. Judy, head of operations at Dream Charter School located in Harlem, NY.
