BERKELEY – Mayor Carmen Amato’s annual school supply drive has begun.
“I hope everyone is having a great summer. I want to let everyone know our annual school supply drive is underway. We want to make sure all students have the tools and resources they need to have a very successful year,” the mayor said.
Mayor Amato added that the collection is for all basic school supplies such as: backpacks, pens, markers, regular and colored pencils, crayons, rulers, safety scissors and folders. All supplies collected go directly to Berkeley Township Elementary School children in need.
“The need is greater and greater each year,” the mayor said. Those interested in donating supplies can drop them at the mayor’s office in Berkeley Town Hall, the Township’s Recreation Building on Route 9 in Bayville or at the recreation booth during the township’s summer concert series at Veterans Park.
“On behalf of the children of our township, I thank each and every one who has donated and supported the school supply drive. Thank you very much,” Mayor Amato added.
