Dear Project Readiness Supporters,

It’s that time of year, and Project Readiness is gearing up for its biggest Backpack Drive yet—Backpack Drive Summer 2024! After years of coming close, we’re confident this is the first year that we’ll cross the 1,000-student milestone! Project Readiness list of referring organizations and schools has grown once again, and we're proud to be supplying fully-stocked backpacks to students identified to us by:

  • Nourish.NJ
  • Head Start of Morris County
  • CASA of Essex County
  • Homeless Solutions
  • Caring Partners of Morris Sussex
  • Frelinghuysen Middle School in Morristown
  • East Side High in Newark
  • Dickinson High in Jersey City
  • Sparrow House Outreach in Newark
  • Certified Angels in Passaic

Donor support in any form is critical in helping us to reach our goal! With your help, we’ll make sure that every student referred to us by these organizations and schools has everything they need to succeed in school.

How can you help? We're glad you asked!

If you would like to participate, there are three ways to do it:

1.) You can email us at [email protected] OR click “Register Today” below and request to be matched with one or more students for whom you can shop. This is the most fun, hands-on way to participate with Project Readiness! You can specify the age range and/or gender of the student(s) for whom you would like to shop, and we will supply you with a list of their age-appropriate supplies. You can drop off your completed backpack with us once it's done!

2.) Not into shopping? We're happy to do it for you! We accept tax-deductible monetary donations, and every dollar helps us get to our goal of helping every student who needs us! Just click the "Make a Donation" button here!

3.) Finally, if you think that your workplace or congregation would like to sponsor a backpack-stuffing event or drive to benefit Project Readiness students, we can help you from inception all the way through execution. These events are fantastic for team building!

Questions? You can reach us via call or text at (646) 854-5735, or via email at [email protected]. Thanks in advance for your participation!
