High Water Women, a hedge fund industry group focused on philanthropy and volunteerism, has launched its second annual back-to-school backpack drive. The organization, which focuses on helping underprivileged women and their families, hopes to deliver more than 1,000 backpacks to needy children in the New York area who cannot afford basic back-to-school items.

The organization plans to collect backpacks, fill them with school supplies, books and basic clothing, and deliver them to charities including Iris House, The Children's Aid Society, Queens Child Guidance Center, Newark Now, Women in Need and The After School Corporation.
