Each year, the High Water Women Backpack Drive helps some of the neediest children in our area start school in September ready to learn. For the third year in a row, KPMG NJ will again participate in the High Water Women Backpack Drive by hosting an on-site Backpack Assembly Event at its Short Hills NJ location on Monday July 23rd where it will assemble 160 backpacks. KPMG NY will also be hosting a backpack assembly event to assemble 450 backpacks. Our combined goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase the school supplies needed to assemble all 610 backpacks at our two backpack assembly events. Each $20 donation funds a backpack filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. This is a great opportunity for KPMG employees to participate in community outreach by making a donation to help us reach our goals.
KPMG NJ has again been paired with the Jubilee Center of Hoboken, a non-profit organization that works with over 100 local children every day to supplement their educational needs. It also works with the local public schools to provide additional support and opportunity to these children. All assembled backpacks from our Backpack Assembly Event will be given to the Jubilee Center.
