Help Wayne kids go back to school in fitting style

Help Wayne kids go back to school in fitting style

As part of its community outreach programming, the Wayne Interfaith Network helps local children start off the school year with a new back-to-school outfit and a pair of shoes. Children up to 16 years old whose families receive assistance from the WIN food pantry receive gift cards to a local clothing store.

WIN is a coalition of volunteers from local houses of worship and service organizations in the greater Wayne area that provides non-perishable food and other basic necessities to needy Wayne residents. WIN’s support programs include an active food pantry, Summer Sneakers & Tees, and Thanksgiving Baskets.

This year, WIN helped nearly 56 children buy new sneakers and a T-shirt for the summer. WIN encourages local people and service-oriented organizations (religious, ethnic, cultural, political, educational, etc.) to consider making a monetary donation to WIN specifically earmarked for “Back-to-School.” Checks can be sent to the Wayne Interfaith Network, POB 3341,Wayne, NJ 07474-3341. For information, go to, email, or call (973) 595-1900. WIN is a 501(c)(3) organization.
