The program has helped over 2,000 elementary school students in Clifton’s schools and local community. Backpacks are made available to all Title I schools and schools in need during the first weeks of school. Our goal for the 2019-2020 school year is 400 backpacks filled with school supplies for K-5 students and 150 for Middle school students.
