Kicking off Passaic County CASA's 2019 School Supply Drive!

It’s that time again! Help us ensure that area children in foster care have what they need to start the school year off on the right foot.

Children in foster care can’t count on going back-to-school shopping with mom or dad. In some cases, children will start the school year at a completely unfamiliar school because they may have moved foster homes. All of them need school supplies to make the transition into the new year just a little bit easier. Having what they need is a confidence boost and can also help them fit in with their peers.

NEW items of particular need are:

composition books
3-subject notebooks
3-ring binders
dividers, folders
pencils, pens
markers, crayons
rulers, protractors
index cards, post-its
glue, tape, staplers
combination locks
loose-leaf paper
pencil cases
pocket dictionaries/thesaurus

All school supply donations may be dropped off at the Passaic County CASA office, located at 415 Hamburg Turnpike, Suite D2 (off Owens Drive), in Wayne.

Businesses and organizations are also welcome to organize collection drives of their own!

The deadline for all donations is Wednesday, August 14. For more information contact Pam Saunders at 973-832-4002 or
