New York Jets star linebacker Erin Henderson announced that he is helping Jersey City children in Back2School efforts today, Thursday August 27th at 12 noon.
Henderson teamed up with AngelaCARES and the United Way of Hudson County to provide needed school supplies and even sports memorabilia to students at Urban Expedition Summer Camp and the Miss Chevonne School of Etiquette. The distribution ach child in these programs will receive a book bag filled with supplies.
“School is essential for the success of our young people,” Angela V. McKnight Founder and CEO of AngelaCARES said. “Unfortunately, many students do not have and many families cannot afford even the basic supplies such as a notebook, pen, pencil or folders to attend school.”
“I am always willing to provide a way, outlet or spot of hope for those in need, especially children and initiatives that promote education. Reaching out to get involved was a no brainer for me,” said Henderson.
Let’s get our school on!
