How You Can Help

We know that education is the smartest investment of our time. When students are properly educated, communities thrive and economies grow. Yet many do not have the necessary supplies to learn effectively. 

We accept supplies, preferably full book-bags (backpacks) filled with the supplies listed below by school grade or any supplies listed below. throughout the year and can arrange for drop off and pick-up throughout Essex County, NJ.  For areas outside of Essex Country, NJ, please click here to provide details of the location for pick-up and we will gladly make arrangements to come to you.


Every year in June and September, we have a donation schedule designed to collect new or gently used filed book-bags and/or school supplies at various locations in our local town.  Please check back in June for these locations. Ideally, donations will be made in the summer to be able to deliver book-bags and school supplies in time for the new academic year to children in need and at-risk schools.


Your donation will help to improve the quality of education and learning for those less fortunate.

Some common donations by grade level are listed below:
