Back2School Outreach – Support Needed

CLIFTON, NJ – July and August kicks off the Back2School Outreach for the 2018-2019 school year. The Back2School Outreach needs the communities support once again, by donating backpacks filled with school supplies. A supply list with instructions is available online at or visit any of the Clifton firehouses, Clifton libraries or the Power of One coaching office on Van Houten Ave. Deadline for sponsors is August 24th.

The Back2School Outreach mission is to provide underprivileged children with a free quality backpack filled with school supplies for her/his new school year. The program has helped over 1,300 elementary school students in the City of Clifton. Backpacks are made available to all Title I schools and schools in need during the first weeks of school. Our goal for the 2018-2019 school year is 300 backpacks filled with school supplies for K-5 students and 100 for Middle school students.
