Each year, thousands of New Jersey children attend their first day of school without basic educational tools such as backpacks, notebooks and calculators.
Jersey Cares works with dozens of schools, children‘s shelters and community centers with the goal that no children in New Jersey will have to experience a first day of school without these basic necessities.
Below is a list of what these children need for back to school. You can bring in items or make a monetary contribution, which will be used to purchase items from their wish list.
We will be collecting from now until Tuesday, August 21st. Please feel free to stop by or call us at 201.655.7411 if you have any questions.
Here’s what we need:
- Backpacks, backpacks, and more backpacks
- Composition notebooks
- Pens and pencils
- Pencil cases
- Markers and crayons
- Pencil Sharpeners
