Moving Forward Together

Back-to-School Backpack Drive

Let’s start students off on the right track with everything they need in a backpack!

For families facing financial challenges, a fully-stocked backpack can be a gamechanger as their kids head back to school.

Each backpack will go to a child whose family is currently receiving assistance through JFS.

Our goal is to provide 400 kids with backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year.
