Back to school can be a stressful time for some families. The list of necessary school supplies seems to grow each year. We want to help the students of South Jersey do their best in school with Mission Backpack 2019. However, we need your help.

Let Us Eat, Please is a nonprofit organization that helps kids, who rely on school lunches as a source of a substantial meal, during the summertime when school is out. For the 2019 school year, the organization will be giving out backpacks to children in need in Atlantic County. We will be helping out at various ShopRites in South Jersey to collect the necessary supplies.

Let Us Eat, Please has provided lists of supplies for both kindergarten through 8th grade and high school students. Save the images or screenshot the images below to use.
