Patch to Hold School Supply Collection for Local Kids

Look for Caldwells Patch table at the Caldwell Farmers Market this Friday.

Caldwells Patch staff will be collecting school supplies for local children at the Caldwell Farmers Market on Friday, Sept. 2, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Items will be donated to the Caldwell Food Pantry, which is currently serving nearly 50 families and is in critical need of food donations.

Patch hopes to ease the burden on these families even further by helping to stuff their children's backpacks with new notebooks, erasers, pencils, etc. These children are from Caldwell and West Caldwell so anything that is on your child's supply list is on theirs.

The market takes place in the parking lot behind , between Smull Avenue and Personette Street. 

Patch will also be giving out cool Patch gear—so be sure to stop by and say hello.

Maybe we could consider the School Supply Collection to benefit students of the West Essex Community too since our Patch site generally covers these areas also.The devastation seems so much more there. Also, while serving at the West Essex Shelter with many volunteers from the Caldwells and then talking with Kevin Hirsch, it seems we all share the same thought that they could use our help.
