Above: These children of JEVS program participants were just some of the 500 who received back-to-school backpacks, thanks to JEVS donors and corporate sponsors.
Nothing says “have a great school year” like new school supplies.
Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of dozens of individual donors and corporate sponsors, earlier this month a team of 55 volunteers convened during two volunteer events to stuff 500 backpacks for children of families enrolled in our programs!
Big thanks to our sponsors Forman Mills, Walmart, TD Bank, Marshalls/TJX and Dooley Roofing and volunteer teams from Aloysius Butler & Clark, Aetna Better Health and State Farm.
Backpacks were distributed to families enrolled in Project WOW, The Choice is Yours, ACT clinics, Work Ready, E3 Power Center City, Center for New Americans and PA CareerLink.
