Help children start the year off right: Donate a backpack and supplies
This summer, New Jersey 101.5, is partnering with our friends at Center For Family Services to help children across New Jersey get set for a year of learning.
Your gift of $10, $20, $50 or more will help support the basic back-to-school needs for a child who has experienced overwhelming life circumstances.
When you make a monetary donation online you’re providing the flexibility to ensure each child receives the exact items and supplies they need based on their age and grade such as brand new, sturdy, unfilled backpacks and duffle bags, access to Chromebooks and tablets, enrichment activities, and clothing necessities.
Join New Jersey 101.5 to make a big impact in the life of a child heading back to school. Visit Center For Family Services today to make your donation or to learn more. With your Project Backpack donation, you will improve the chances for success for a child and make your community stronger.

Plus, your monetary gift will give each child the chance to select their own backpack or duffle in a favorite color and have access to the personalized necessities they need to thrive.
