This Saturday, WPG and our Townsquare Media South Jersey sister stations are joining forces to collect donations to make sure local kids have the supplies they need to go back to school.

Here, Heather DeLuca from SoJO 104.9 gives you a couple idea on how to stock a backpack using our Mission: Backpack checklist.

You can drop off your pre-assembled backpack, or any school supplies you'd like to donate, to our Mission: Backpack event this Saturday, August 24th from 10a-2p. You'll find SoJO 104-9 at English Creek ShopRite with 97.3 EPSN. Our two other convenient donation location are with Cat Country 107.3 and Rock 104.1 at ShopRite in Somers Point, and Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG and WPG Talk Radio 95.5 at ShopRite in Absecon.

We thank you in advance for your generosity. Proceeds will benefit Let Us Eat Please, Inc., a non-profit organization in Atlantic County that will distribute the backpacks to local students in need.
