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.
