8th Annual Book Bag and School Supplies Drive

Princeton Online Announcement

Princeton, NJ - The Princeton Human Services Department is seeking donors for its 8th Annual Book Bag and School Supplies Drive. The drive benefits Princeton children who are low-income and in need of school supplies and new book bags.


For the past eight years, the Princeton Human Services Commission, municipal employees, local businesses, organizations and residents have donated book bags and school supplies that have benefited up to 100 Princeton children. The items are distributed to children from low-income families who attend the Princeton Public Schools and are entering kindergarten through sixth grade.


If you would like to participate in this year’s drive, you may drop off donations at the Princeton Human Services office on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is located in the former borough hall at One Monument Drive. The deadline for donations is Friday August 4th, 2017.


You may choose to donate book-bags (gender neutral, it is preferred) or school supplies or both! Items that can be donated include book bags, notebooks, binders, folders, loose leaf paper, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, scissors, glue sticks, and other school supplies.


Hundreds of applications have been distributed to families with children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. Your help and generosity is greatly appreciated. If you have questions, please call our office at (609) 688-2055 or send an e-mail to .
