For most kids, the first day of school is exciting and usually comes with some jitters. Foster children and families in need have the added burden of returning to school with empty backpacks, or no backpack at all.
Umojawa, a Maplewood based business that aims to help nonprofits more effectively manage their organizations, is holding a Back to School donation drive that will help hundreds of students in our area start the school year confident, prepared, and ready to learn. The items collected will go to children in need via the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Essex County New Jersey.
