Backpack Drive

Backpack Drive

Jersey City Youth Foundation and Mayor Steven M. Fulop provided 10,000 free backpacks and school supplies to Jersey City students in grades K-12.  As one of the signature events JCYF has the ultimate goal of providing back packs for all 27,000 public school children each and every year.

The Jersey City Youth Foundation is working towards the goal of providing backpacks for every child in a Jersey City public school. Your participation in identifying how many students you have today at each grade level will help ensure the right number of age appropriate school supply kits are provided to you. If we are successful in this effort we can eliminate the need for families to register individually for the backpacks and provide one more point of relief and assistance to families helping their children have a successful school year.
