The Backpacks Are Back!

Picture_3_School_17forwebCLIFTON, NJ – Help us to provide Clifton students with free quality filled backpacks for their 2014-2015 school year. During July and August volunteers will be collecting school supplies and backpacks in the community.

Our goal this year is 200 backpacks filled with school supplies for K-5 students and 100 for Middle school students. We can use your help by donating a filled backpack and/or school supplies. Drop off items at the Clifton Libraries during July and August. A supply list with instructions is located at the Main and Allwood Library or online at www.powerofoneccom,org
