20,000 Homeless Children Start School with Backpacks and Supplies

Randa Accessories is proud to support the New York Chapter of the Volunteers of America with Operation Backpack.

Randa supplied more than product and funding, this year the world's largest men's accessories company supplied the hearts, minds and hands of many of our NY and NJ region associates to help sort, pack and prep backpacks filled with school supplies.




Nearly 23,000 children live in NYC’s homeless and domestic violence shelters. 

One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. 

Each year since 2001, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has been distributing new backpacks filled with grade-specific school supplies to homeless children throughout New York City. 


A filled backpack relieves parents of a financial burden and provides a sense of normalcy to the otherwise chaotic lives of these children, helping them to look and feel more like their classmates.  Most importantly, a filled backpack allows these children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important and that someone believes in them.  

Operation Backpack campaigns are held nationwide; click here to find other locations. 

Here's a thank you, from VOA NYC to those who participated in Operation Backpack, 2015.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
