Back to School Backpack Project
For the second year in a row we supplied over 100 backpacks filled with all required school supplies to the neediest children at Hightower Elementary, one of our Title 1 schools. In addition we collected items for a school supply closet that Hightower teachers can access for students during the year. We plan to continue this program for years to come. We accept school supply donations as well as children’s coats year round. Please bring them by the NCJW office and we will give you a receipt for tax purposes.
Mother's Day Jewelry Store Project
For our annual Mother’s Day Jewelry Store project, we collected over 6000 pieces of jewelry, which enabled us to provide free Mother’s Day gifts for the mothers or caregivers of nearly 5000 children (K-5) in four Metro Atlanta Title 1 schools. This was a massive and rewarding volunteer effort! Costume jewelry can be donated year round for this program. Please bring your pieces by the NCJW office and we will provide you with a receipt for your taxes.
