Back2School Outreach
Exceeds All Expectations!

CLIFTON, NJ – Power of One would like to thank the Clifton community for supporting this year’s Back2School Outreach program. Through the generous support of the local community and business’, a total of 620 backpacks filled with school supplies have been collected and distributed to children in need.   All Title I – K-8 Schools in Clifton and community resource representatives working with families received their allocated amounts this year and were ready for the first week of school. The distributed backpacks are continually being handed out by school Principals, and faculty as needs arise throughout the school year.
