Bergen’s Promise 2021 Annual Backpack Drive

Thursday, October 7, 2021

As our Bergen’s Promise youth start the 2021 school year, this was another highly anticipated Fall. To support our youth in need, Bergen’s Promise held our annual Backpack and School Supply Drive. Through the help of our numerous donors, we were able to provide backpacks and supplies to over 240 youth this year. With their help, we were able to fulfill 100% of our requests.

We are extremely grateful and wanted to extend a huge thank you to our donors for the generosity that everyone at their organizations demonstrated during our School Backpack Drive. Many of these donors have supporting us for multiple years now.

  • Bergen Bar
  • Jersey Cares
  • SG Footwear
  • EDNI Counseling Services
  • Savia Community Counseling
  • Jordana Merkin & Friends

Having the proper supplies plays a key role in helping to support a successful year at school. These donations make a significant impact on many of our Bergen’s Promise youth throughout Bergen County. We will continue to have other initiatives like this throughout the year and appreciate the support we receive to make these events a success!
