Seventh grader Jaime, left, is one of 168 children who received a backpack full of school supplies at The Crisis Room at Aldersgate United Methodist Church on Ryders Lane in East Brunswick.

The Crisis Room, Catholic Charities, Women Aware, East Brunswick Township and Jewish Family Services benefitted from a collection
spearheaded by Nativity Lutheran Church with the help of the East Brunswick Jewish Center (EBJC).

The Milltown VFW, Eagle’s Landing Day Camp and a local Girl Scout troop helped with the donations.
