“Back-to-school means new teachers, new friends and new classrooms, but it also means new expenses for families,” said Anthony Subraj of Zara Realty. “For many families in our Southeast Queens community, making ends meet at this time of year is difficult. We hope these backpacks and school supplies can go a little way towards easing that burden.”
Assemblyman David Weprin helped distribute the backpacks at a festive event in Jamaica last Friday.
“It was rewarding to see so many smiling faces as kids dug through their new backpacks to see what supplies they had,” said Amir Sobhraj of Zara Realty. “We look forward to giving out the rest of the supplies and to helping even more families in Jamaica prepare for the coming school year.”
