With all New Jersey school children returning to school buildings this fall, the ANJC PR Committee is challenging membership in a new initiative to collect backpacks and school supplies for the Jersey Cares School Supply Drive.
Jersey Cares is a nonprofit organization that collects school supplies and backpacks for under-resourced school children every year. The organization’s goal this year is 3,700 bags. Let’s help them shatter it!
How can you help?
Be a local collection site. We’ve made it easy by putting together ready-made fliers, supply lists and email and news release templates for your local Patch or newspaper. Use them to solicit donations from your community, your patients, your friends and neighbors.
We will send you a list of drop-off sites near you to deliver your collected items when your bin is full. We will also ask you for a count each week of the number of backpacks you have collected, so we can measure our progress toward our goal of 1,000 backpacks.
