Lite Rock's Mission Backpack 2019 happens this Saturday from 10a-2p at ShopRite of Absecon and we can use your help.

We will be collecting back-to-school supplies and backpacks to help kids in need return to school the right way. Back to school can be a stressful time for some families. The list of necessary school supplies seems to grow each year. Please pitch in and help the students of South Jersey do their best in school with Mission Backpack 2019.
