Westy Self Storage in Chatham, N.J., is partnering with a local outreach program to collect school supplies for children.
The drive aims to collect new backpacks and school supplies for 500 children in Irvington and Newark in New Jersey, and New York City. Donations can be dropped off at Westy Self Storage, 15 River Road, through Aug. 24 during office hours.
The drive is sponsored by Bridges Outreach Inc., which delivers bagged lunches, clothes and toiletries to children and teens, and the Christ Child Society of Summit, a non-profit association of volunteers that provides a number of programs for infants and children.
With corporate headquarters in Stamford, Conn., Westy Self Storage spans the tri-state area with seven centers in New York, six in Connecticut and three in New Jersey.
