New Yorkers: Shop for a good cause!

Help support New York City public school libraries!

From now until October 8th, more than 80 stores in 250 locations across New York City will be supporting the city’s public school libraries as part of the Shop for Public Schools program. Shop for Public School is a program developed by NYC nonprofit The Fund for Public Schools, in partnership with the city’s retail community. Stores of all shapes and sizes are participating -- from major chains, to luxury boutiques, to the coffee shop on the corner.

There’s something for everyone -- visit to find listings of participating stores, special events, offers, and more.

One event you won't want to miss on Sunday: Parenting's marquee event at CitiBabes in Soho with our partner Alex & Sam, a philanthropically minded gift boutique. Laurie Berkner will perform, Amy Robach, co-anchor of the Today Show Weekend will host, and you'll get to meet our editor-in-chief, Susan Kane! There will be tons of family activities, including a surprise celebrity appearance!

Time: 11AM - 4PM
Date: Sunday, October 4th
Location: Citibabes Soho Club, 52 Mercer St., 3rd Floor
Tickets/RSVP: $20 per family
