Operation Backpack and The Roger!

Have you heard of Operation Backpack®? Operation Backpack® is a back-to-school drive that collects and distributes new backpacks full of grade-specific supplies to the thousands of homeless children living in greater New York City. A new backpack can send a child, who may be living on the streets or in a domestic violence shelter, to school with the tools they need and the confidence to tackle any obstacle with the opportunity to succeed.

Interested to learn how you can join us in our efforts to collaborate with this great organization? Read on for a few ways to help us lend a hand to Operation Backpack®:

  • Reserve our “Backpack to School” Package: For a limited time, book this special package and we will donate a full backpack to a child in need! Not only that but you’ll also receive a free upgrade and a $50 Food and Beverage credit - just our way of saying ‘thank you’ for helping us make a difference in our community.
  • Food Credit Donation Match: Already booked your room at The Roger? If you donate through our crowdrise page (more info and link below) we will double your donation in available food credit during your upcoming stay! So, say you give $100 to our campaign, we will give you $200* in credit! You win, we win, Operation Backpack®, and the kids they help support, benefit greatly!
  • Parlour Tasting Entry: If you donate (a minimum of $10) to our Crowdrise page you will gain entry to our Parlour Tasting with el Buho Mezcal May 18th! This event will allow you access to this delicious spirit and complimentary tastings and a specialty cocktail, The Roger Night Owl, a spicy Mezcal Mule.
  • Drop Off Locale: The Roger Hotel is an official "drop-location" for the community. The lists of supplies for each grade category are included here: OperationBackpackNYC.org
