Backpack Giveaway

Fanmire is committed to connecting communities. Whether it is online, on our platform, or neighborhoods, Fanmire aims to spark discussion, provide guidance, and share resources. Our team is dedicated to giving back, and what better way in these uncertain times than to share supplies with children and families returning to school mid pandemic. We are excited to launch our first backpack giveaway in Brownsville, Brooklyn on Saturday, August 15th 2020 at noon. We will be giving away 100 backpacks with school supplies.  

Date: Saturday, August 15th 2020 @ 12 PM

Location: 275 Dumont Ave

We are grateful for a chance to have an impact in the community, but we also understand that a backpack giveaway will not solve all of the hardships faced by many families across Brooklyn. 

To assist in other areas, we have put together a list of  community resources that can benefit families in Brownsville during Covid-19 and beyond.
