School Supply Drives with the FBI Citizens Academy Newark

Academy Alumni Association for Newark, New Jersey to bring educational supplies and opportunities to students worldwide.  In 2018, we collected and donated school supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils, rulers, scissors, crayons, highlighters, and glues sticks to students in Little Falls, NJ.  In 2019, we donated 300 backpacks filled with 2 notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, a glue stick, sharpener, and rulers to students at the Mt. Bethel Church of God in Trenton and Newark, NJ.  In 2020, we raised $12,000 to bring internet connectivity to three schools throughout New Jersey.
