Collecting school supplies in Glen Rock

Collecting school supplies in Glen Rock

The Glen Rock Jewish Center is holding a school supply drive, running through July 31, to benefit Oasis — A Haven for Women & Children in Paterson. The GRJC wants to help make sure that local children have what they need to start the new school year in a good way.

The synagogue is collecting backpacks, pencil boxes, pens (all colors), pencils, erasers (block and pencil top), glue sticks, watercolor paints, highlighters, thick and thin markers, colored pencils, five-subject notebooks, zippered binders, calculators, crayons, and rulers.

Donations can be dropped off in the marked bin at the front steps of the GRJC at the Harristown Road entrance or at the Curious Reader, 229 Rock Road in Glen Rock.
