Can you imagine starting a new school year without a backpack or any school supplies? For many local students, this is the case! With the help of our community and local South Jersey businesses, we were able to distribute nearly 400 backpacks filled with school supplies. A HUGE thank you to Soroptimist International of Cumberland County, Circle D Horse Farm, Peace Love Yoga and individuals who helped make this year's school supply drive a huge success. Your support helps strengthens our communities for a brighter future.
The school supplies were distributed to our collaborative partners at Family Strengthening Network to help with low income families, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties to help foster kids in need of supplies, Shine Ministries in Millville to help the kids who attend their after school program, Bridgeton's Stronger Families, Millville's Connecting Families to Communities and Families to College.
