School Supply Drive

June 1st-August 22nd










Each year, thousands of New Jersey children attend their first day of school without basic educational tools such as backpacks, notebooks and calculators. These under-resourced children struggle to succeed academically. 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. With your help, we can bridge the gap between disadvantage and academic success.
