Dozens of Ozone Park children eagerly awaited their turn to receive a free backpack filled with school supplies on Monday, thanks to ICNA Relief and MedAid Pharmacy.
The drive took place at the pharmacy, located at 77-08 101 Ave., for the second year in a row. Many of the recipients are of Bengali descent.
ICNA Relief, a Muslim advocacy group, has hosted back-to-school drives across the country and has handed out more than 100,000 backpacks to students in low-income areas.
Members of the group are seen in the above picture handing the backpacks to children.
