As the end of August nears, so does the realization that back to school is imminent for thousands of city students. For some, the task of even have a new backpack and supplies can be a challenge due to the high costs that encompass them.  Fortunately, one of the best hotels in New York City is pairing with one of the top shopping locations in the world to help many kids out this school year.

Lotte New York Palace and Bloomingdale’s are working to help Operation Backpack reach their city-wide goal of donating 20,000 backpacks and school supplies, allowing these students to feel more prepared and confident about their education. The iconic luxury hotel and premiere retail destination are teaming up for a good cause just in time for back-to-school season with the “Give Back, Go Back” package.

How amazing is that?  Here are the details behind this amazing package-

Give Back. Go Back.
