The annual Why Not Care Lower East Side Festival will take place August 27th. The festival is geared towards providing the community with schools supplies, program information and access to free resources throughout the Lower East Side, East Village and city of New York. So far they have given out over 12,000+ book bags in 5 years. With your help we can keep bringing these much needed resources into the community and help keep our youth stay equipped and ready to take on the world. GSD will be providing 168 book bags to children, including migrants. GSD will also be handing out the bags and we encourage members to volunteer.
