On Tuesday, Sept. 3, the Beren County Bar Foundation distributed over 165 backpacks and school supplies to local children in need as part of its annual school supply drive. The Foundation members filled and distributed backpacks with essential school supplies, made possible by donations from Foundation members and the community at large. The year the foundation distributed backpacks to students through local organizations including CASA, Bergen CAP, YCS and Shelter our Sisters.

“This is just one way that the Bar can make an impact on the lives of our local communities,” state Foundation President Thomas Loikith. “Our members look forward to the Backpack drive and are encouraged by the response from the non-profits who partner with us to distribute supplies.”
