LONG BRANCH, N.J. – The Long Branch Concordance Family Success Center invites families to benefit from the 4th annual Back to School Uniform and School Supply Drive to take place on Saturday, August 28, from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at St. James Church Community Room, 300 Broadway, Long Branch.
Families will receive free “gently” used school uniforms and brand new school supplies for the upcoming year. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
“The current economic atmosphere calls for grassroots community organizations such as ours to respond to the ever emerging needs of the community. This is one way in which the Family Success Center assists families in overcoming barriers to basic needs such as school uniforms and school supplies. Last summer the event provided 354 children with “gently” used school uniforms and new school supplies,” stated Lisa Wilson, MSW, Executive Director.
