“Suit Dreams’ primary mission is to address the educational and social disparities plaguing young urban males in Brooklyn, New York. We recognize that many students from low income backgrounds do not possess the resources required to purchase basic school supplies.
To answer the call, the Suit Dreams: Back to School Supply Drive was born….
Suit Dreams has partnered with the Mott Hill Academy in Brownsville, Brooklyn NYC for this effort. This Middle School, lead by Principal Nadia Lopez, is doing an amazing job cultivating our youths for success, but they need our help! This school supply drive will lighten the load placed on both the school and parents, ensuring that every student is equip with the tools necessary for academic advancement.”-Jerrell Horton

The Mott Hill Academy (Brooklyn NY)
Freebrook Academy (Brooklyn NY)
