Help make back to school supply drive a success

Dear Editor:
Back to school time is a very exciting time when you are a child. We may not believe this but many children love to go back to school to interact with their friends and teachers. I believe that we must do our part to make sure that children and their families are prepared for this time of year without being concerned about not having supplies and other material. Therefore, I am excited to be supporting St. John’s Lutheran Church’s Food Pantry in their Back to School Supplies Drive for children in our area.
From Wednesday, July 29, 2015, through the end of August, you can drop off supplies at boxes located in the following locations: St. John’s Church: 155 North Street, Jersey City, NJ 07307 (only on Sunday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.; you can call Debra at (347) 237-0108 if you have anything for her to pick up) Angel Azul Bakery: 460 Central Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07307 (Monday through Sunday from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.) Make sure to try out their low priced breakfast options and breads!
