This drive aims to provide local, underprivileged students with school supplies to give them the best shot at success. Nandalala volunteers will stock brand new backpacks with essential school supplies such as notebooks, binders, pencils, crayons, calculators, and water bottles.

As the back-to-school season rapidly approaches, please support Nandalala Mission in reaching this year’s goal to provide 40 backpacks to schools in central New Jersey.

Here’s how you can help:
