The annual Back to School Giveaway will take place on Saturday, August 18, from 9 a.m. to noon at Hurdtown United Methodist Church (823 Route 15 South, Lake Hopatcong – next to the rescue squad building).

Children and youth may select backpacks, school supplies, nutritious snacks, and gently used/new clothing from preschool to teen sizes.

All of this is offered free, thanks to generous donations from the congregation and area organizations. There is no proof of need required and participants do not have to be Jefferson residents.

The United Methodist Women, who have hosted this outreach event for close to 20 years, welcome everyone to come and take what they need. For more information, contact the church office at 973-663-1216.
