About 2022 Back To School New Sneaker Drive

The NY Race Track Chaplaincy, with your help, provides backpacks filled with the specific supplies needed, for hundreds of students of the backstretch communities of Belmont, Aqueduct, and Saratoga.
During the backpack distribution we also provide free first day of school haircuts, distribute free clothing, and even provide ice cream for everyone in order to provide a fun, relaxing, and festive atmosphere for the students and their families as they prepare for the first day of school.
This year for the first time we would like to provide a new pair of sneakers for each of our students in Kindergarten through 6th grade.  As we all know the price of preparing for school has increased significantly and a pair of new sneakers is not a feasible purchase for our families.

You may help us to obtain this goal by contributing toward the purchase of sneakers.

If you would like to purchase sneakers and donate them you may do so as well.
