Faces & Places – NCJW Stuffing Backpacks

Fifty volunteers worked July 25 to set up items for packing and 90 volunteers showed up July 26 to stuff backpacks for NCJW’s annual event to ensure a good start of the school year for 1,500 homeless and low-income children in Oakland County. Volunteers ranged in age from young children to grandparents.

The Oakland Schools Homeless Student Education Program supplied 1,200 backpacks; 300 backpacks were donated to children in need through Jewish Family Service.
