Masks Added To School Supply Drive

  BERKELEY – Masks and other personal protective equipment have been added to the school supply drive held every summer in Berkeley Township.

  “As our school districts work with the State of NJ, their Boards and various stakeholders on the safest way to reopen this fall, we want to make sure ALL students have the supplies they need for a great year. We anticipate due to COVID-19 the need will be greater than ever. If you have the means, please consider donating,” Mayor Carmen Amato said.

  The following supplies are needed:

  • Reusable masks and other personal protective equipment
  • Backpacks
  • Notebooks
  • Safety scissors
  • Pens and pencils
  • Erasers
  • Color markers
  • Glue and glue sticks
  • Crayons
  • Rulers

  School supplies can be dropped off at the Berkeley Recreation Center, Route 9 in Bayville, the mayor’s office at Town Hall, the 23rd Ave. lifeguard station, or the Recreation booth at the Sounds of Summer concerts at Veterans Park.

  There is a drawing available to win one of four $25 Visa gift cards when you drop off items.
