Summer 2021 Backpack Drive


Project Readiness is off and running!  We are grateful for the ease in pandemic restrictions for many reasons, not least of which is the ability to facilitate a "normal" backpack drive again this summer.  This is what we do best, and we truly missed it last year.  So far this spring, we've delivered 213 fully-stocked backpacks to Head Start of Morris County.  These packs will be delivered to every rising Pre-K and Kindergarten student in the Morris Plains, Dover, and Wharton sites.  Thank you to everyone who donated to and supported this phase of our drive!

AND WE ARE JUST GETTING WARMED UP, EVERYONE.  It's not even summer yet!  We have literally hundreds more students to outfit for in-person learning in the Fall, and we are up to the task.  Our goal is to equip all students receiving services from Family Promise, Homeless Solutions; nourish.NJ, and the FRC Boonton Food Pantry.  In order to do this, we need your help!  

1) If you would like to be matched with one or more students for whom you can shop and fill a backpack, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we will get you matched up!

2) If you would like to donate funds so that we can do the shopping for you, you can do that here -- thank you in advance!  We will put any donated funds to good use.

3) If you would like to plan a mini-backpack drive at your corporation, we can help with that! Please email us at [email protected] for more information.

4) If you or your child would like to volunteer with PR this summer, we're ALWAYS looking for extra hands.  Please email us for more information on this as well.

Thank you, as always, for your support!

Annie and Jen
