Table of Hope to Hold Backpack Giveaway at CCM
Free Supplies for a New School Year

As parents start to plan for a new school year, Table of Hope once again is helping to make things easier with a free backpack distribution event at County College of Morris (CCM).

The Backpack Giveaway at CCM takes place Friday, Aug. 18, 2023, from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. in Parking Lot 1 on CCM’s campus at 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph.

Visitors are asked to use CCM’s Center Grove Road entrance.

CCM has hosted numerous events with Table of Hope to assist those in need. This latest distribution event will provide backpacks filled with school supplies, consisting of pencils, rulers, glue sticks, notebooks and more.

Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic struck New Jersey, Table of Hope, a program run by the Spring Street Community Development Corp., began operating weekly mobile food distribution programs in Morristown, Parsippany and Dover, along with other grocery supply events in Morris County communities.

Its first event at CCM was held in June 2020. Along with Table of Hope, the Spring Street CDC also operates the Student Outreach and Academic Reinforcement program, known as SOAR.
